Visit Beijing and earn 4 upper division units in Communication Studies! 


In Summer 2014 Dr. David Terry is leading an intercultural communication study abroad program to China, with a special emphasis on tourism, modernity, and urban life.

Students will stay at Communication University of China, which provides comfortable dormitory housing, low-cost meals, and easy access to the sights of Beijing. Classes focus on conversation and real-life exploration, and you will have lots of free time. That means opportunities to climb the Great Wall, wander the Forbidden City, experience the Peking Opera, and more.

Pricing (excluding airfare and visa fees) is about $2,500, which covers housing, course fees, food, and several local tours. Cost for airfare and visa fees is estimated at an additional $1,500. The course meets COMM 161F requirements, but course substitutions can be made if you've already taken that course. If you're a communication studies major, you should apply for this terrific opportunity.
