The Summer Course Series on "Global Climate Change"
The Summer Course Series on "Global Climate Change" is jointly organized by Xiamen University and San Diego State University, which is designed especially for students from these and other institutions, including Taiwan Yunlin University of Science and Technology, Taiwan Ilan University, Fuzhou University and Fujian Normal University, every summer for two weeks from 2012. Every year, around 50 students from Xiamen, Fuzhou, Taiwan, the USA will be recruited to join the program.
Summer school combines course study with field trips as well as cultural study together. We provide participants with quality learning, key concepts and current update in various aspects of environmental science. Students work as a group for the topic of choice decided by the group members. A group topic can be broadly defined in climate change science. A student will research and report on an area that cohesively integrates into the group topic.
