Elective Courses at Fudan University

BU’s Shanghai programs offer a growing range of elective courses for our students. Taught by Fudan University Professors as well as locally based professors and experts from many countries, these courses enhance students’ understanding of Chinese history, culture, economics, business, and society.  We work with the Fudan University School of Social Development and Public Policy (SSDPP) to offer these courses. Subject to the approval of BU faculty and school department, these courses may go towards fulfilling students’ major and minor requirements.

Courses taught by Chinese professors may be different in terms of their structure, organization, and style to courses that students are used to at BU or their home university. Learning with Chinese professors on a Chinese university campus provides students with valuable additional insights into Chinese society and culture.
