Visit CAPA Overseas
A visit to see one of our programs will give you the opportunity first hand to see how CAPA implements our Global Cities curriculum and manages customized programs. CAPA regularly host Global Cities conferences at all of our program locations and accepts individual visitors from institutions to meet our staff, experience the program in action, and learn about how we can partner with you.
Please join the 2015 CAPA Global Program Development Forum-Shanghai to discover why this dynamic, fast-paced, forward-looking mega-city is the epicenter of Chinese economic development and the ideal study abroad destination for your students.
An experiment in the creation of a global mega-city, Shanghai seeks to challenge the current western sensibility of what is “the urban.”
As a participant in the Forum, you will analyze and explore this unique environment, much like your students will, while gaining insight into CAPA's approach to teaching the city. This means:
• You will be exposed to the ways in which CAPA creates learning pathways to key issues such as the coexistence of the traditional and modern and the politics of urban management.
• You will have opportunities to meet with faculty and representatives of East China Normal University, CAPA’s Shanghai partner, visit housing and internship sites, and attend lectures on the history of China, including its important art history, and its business and economic policy.
• You will participate in guided tours to sites such as industrial parks and art districts and meet with Chinese officials guiding much of the city’s development.
