Directed Research

The Public Health Policy and Practice program offers a unique opportunity for undergraduates to delve deeply into meaningful research projects of their own design in the capital of the world’s most populous country. Students conceptualize, conduct, and present a substantial piece of research relevant to the burgeoning field of public health. Each research project takes place within the practical context of a local organization and provides opportunities for community engagement.

Internships

In Beijing, students have the opportunity to participate in an unpaid, credit-bearing internship at sites that may include Chinese or international non-profits, corporations, or think-tanks focused on promoting public and environmental health. Students will spend 10-12 hours per week in their placement and will be expected to complete the academic requirements of their internship to receive credit.
