Cross-Strait Immersive Module Language Initiative: Taipei and Shanghai

This innovative 4-unit course is built on the notion of “languaging the profession” initiative. It includes field research and networking opportunities focused on economic, development, and security issues across the straits. This initiative is a joint collaboration between Professor Wei Liang and Professor Jinhuei Enya Dai and seeks to bridge the gap between students’ academic and career goals. This pilot program serves as a new model for language acquisition at a professional international graduate school setting, a true future-learning model.
