YYGS-Beijing: Gain a Deeper Understanding of the Asian Region

October 27, 2017
In 2018, YYGS will offer six summer sessions on Yale’s campus in New Haven as well as a summer session at Yale Center Beijing in China. The two-week session in Beijing will offer interdisciplinary programming focused on “Asia in the 21st Century.” Hosted and administered at Yale Center Beijing, the session is geared towards high school students interested in gaining a deeper understanding of the unique economic, development, and security challenges within the Asia region. In Beijing, students have the opportunity to experience Yale’s world-renowned education while exploring one of the most culturally-vibrant and influential cities in the world. In addition to bringing some of Yale’s most renowned professors to China, this session takes advantage of its location by inviting distinguished professionals with real-life experience to lecture on relevant, important issues. Students also have the opportunity to visit significant cultural sites, such as the Great Wall and the Forbidden City. YYGS-Beijing is limited to 90 students, making an intimate atmosphere for students to learn and make connections with their instructors and peers. This is the third year YYGS is offering a session in China, but the first time it is doing so during the summer.
