U.S.-based short-term public health cultural immersion experience for Chinese undergraduate students


Journal Article

© NASPA 2017. A U.S. and Chinese university developed a short-term student exchange program in public/community health. The program-which consisted of lectures, seminars, field trips, cross-cultural experiences, and a synthesis excursion-resulted in high levels of program satisfaction, increased intrapersonal awareness, and skill acquisition. Program content and student evaluations indicate that short-term study-abroad programs in the United States may be attractive alternatives or enhancements to long-term academic study for foreign nationals.
