Social Science Summer Research in China - Paid

Twelve undergraduates and a team of faculty mentors will research the impact of economic development and societal change on China’s already precarious environmental position across the Yellow River Loess Plateau. The program will be from June 21to August 1, 2010. Students will engage in the complete process of designing a research agenda and performing primary research in the social sciences at an international field site. Student participation is encouraged from all fields of the social sciences, including sociology, anthropology, geography, environmental studies, economics, political science, Asian studies, and history. Juniors and non-graduating seniors are particularly encouraged to apply.http://www.umbc.edu/undergrad_ed/research/opportunities/SocialScienceResearchinChina.htm
