Study Feng Shui in China! Students from diverse majors are encouraged to participate in this UW-Madison faculty-led seminar focusing on the concept and application of Chinese Feng Shui and its impact on Chinese art, design, history, culture, and society.

The leading center of learning for over 700 years, China is home to breathtaking historical sites such as the Forbidden City and Imperial Palace, as well as modern building innovations of sleek office high rises and emerging industrial quarters. Feng Shui has shaped many aspects of the way these buildings, palaces, and other public and private spaces have been designed and built, making the entire city a laboratory for studying Feng Shui's impact on design.

Over 5,000 years old, China has been developing at an amazing speed and now welcomes visitors from all around the world to explore its past and present. The biggest country in Asia and having the largest population in the world, China displays an extraordinarily rich cultural art design heritage. With Feng Shui principles deeply embedded within the Chinese way of life, China is a perfect venue for studying art, design, and its impact on human development and behavior.
