UCLA Summer 2014 Travel Study Programs

This year we are offering several Travel Study Programs for Summer 2014 to which we would like to extend an invitation to your students. Two programs that I would like to briefly highlight are, “Globalization and 21st Century China” (Beijing) and “”Debating Multiculturalism—Britain, Immigration, and the European Union” (London).

Under Professor Cindy Fan, students in Beijing will examine China’s phenomenal rise in the world economy and international arena. The program will analyze the notion that the twenty-first century is “China’s century” through the lens of urban transformations as well as peoples’ lives on the ground. By observing the paths of development in Beijing, students in the program will learn about the economic, social, and political processes of globalization as well as the problems arising from it. The program will be an 8-unit, four week program (July 6 – August 2) that  includes lectures, guest lectures by local experts, readings, discussions and many field trips.

The London program will take place July 13 – August 8 and be taught by Professor Aamir Mufti. This travel study program will be concerned with contemporary debates about immigration and multiculturalism in Britain and the European Union (EU) more broadly. It will provide an overview of the history of European integration since World War II as well as a more focused examination of the history of immigration in London and Britain over the decades. In addition, students will examine the way in which culture and migration have come to dominate discussion of the future of what had primarily been conceived of as an economic union.

I have attached the fliers for both the London and Beijing programs for your reference. However, for more detailed information about the various Travel Study opportunities that are available please encourage your students to visit, http://ieo.ucla.edu/travelstudy/programs.

Former Intern Testimonials

"Interning with Senator Feinstein’s Los Angeles office has been one of the most rewarding and enlightening experiences I have ever had.  Staff members challenge interns to not only write and reason at their highest levels but also discover and pursue what they are truly passionate about. In addition, interns have excellent opportunities to learn from and network with inspiring, successful leaders in the Los Angeles community. Simply put, interning at Senator Feinstein’s office helped to reform and develop my interests into possible career opportunities.”

 –AJ, Spring-Summer 2013

"My time as a summer intern in Senator Dianne Feinstein’s Los Angeles office was truly an unforgettable experience.  The chance to work with and learn from some of Senator Feinstein’s highest ranking staffers has allowed me to gain experience and knowledge that I could not have received from anywhere else.  Engaging in some of the foremost issues in American politics and working first-hand with constituents has been remarkably eye-opening and given me an unmatched understanding of the Democratic process.  Actively contributing to one of the most prominent leaders in the Senate is an incredibly rewarding feeling and one I will carry with me throughout the rest of my life and career.” – Jamie, Summer 2013
