Academically ambitious Beijing-area high school students can experience UChicago-style intellectual engagement without leaving home. Taught by University of Chicago Senior Lecturer in Psychology Anne Henly and a graduate student at the University’s Center in Beijing, this 2-week intensive program will offer students the opportunity to hone their critical thinking, reading, writing, and discussion skills, which are essential parts of an education at selective U.S. universities and colleges. It will also teach students to tackle big problems and fundamental questions in the University’s unique interdisciplinary style: in particular, how language affects our perceptions and beliefs, our attitudes and emotions, and ultimately, our decisions and behavior.
