All NYU Shanghai Fall 2013 students are required to take a class called “Global Encounters”. It is a zero-credit course and you will be automatically enrolled in it by NYU Shanghai over the summer so you do not need to enroll yourself in Albert. As part of the course, you are required to read China in the 21st Century: What Everyone Needs to Know by Jeffrey N. Wasserstrom (ISBN-10: 0199974969). Please purchase this book before you come to China and bring it with you to Shanghai.
