This subject consists of a three-week field trip to China in July with some pre-departure seminars in Melbourne and information sessions in Semester 1. The subject is designed to develop students’ interests in Asia, in China in particular, and in the impacts of economic and social development on the environment. While in China, students will interact with local academics and environmental managers who will inform them about issues and processes in China. This will be supplemented by site visits. The field trip will be under the supervision of the subject coordinators. Students are responsible for the cost of airfares, accommodation and food.
Original field notes in either Chinese or English completed during fieldwork (15%) due last day in China, field-evidence based research poster 3000 words (35%) due the third Friday of semester 2, and your own group project report (arising from group project work) of 5000 words (50%) due the first Monday after the non-teaching week.
It is a hurdle requirement that students must attend the field trip.
