  • Two Sides of the Coin: Advanced Chinese Conversation

    Many of us know about the trolley scenario- would you kill one to save five? What do you think about organ trade- is it immoral for wealthy people to buy organs from the poor in order to save their lives or those of their loved ones? Who are really responsible for the atrocious organ harvesting in China? What is your stance on the Affirmative Action? Did you know China has an affirmative action as well? The goal of this course is to develop students’ communication skills in Chinese, with an emphasis on their listening and speaking skills, through in-depth discussions on controversial issues and moral dilemmas. Class materials will cover a broad range of topics and will not be limited to those unique to China. The majority of primary sources will be in Chinese. Prerequisite is CHIN0800 or equivalent.
