U.S.-Based Short-Term Public Health Cultural Immersion Experience for Chinese Undergraduate Students
Powell, Dorothy Lewis; Biederman, Donna J.
Journal of Student Affairs Research and Practice, v54 n4 p454-463 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.
