The Chinese program provides a faculty-led Summer Study Abroad Program in China. The program is academically rigorous and culturally enriching. It offers seven language courses at all proficiency levels, and four culture, film, Asian Economic courses taught in English. At the beginning of the program, we have a four-day trip in Shanghai and JiangSu province. While in Beijing, students take organized weekend trips to visit the Great Wall, museums, historical parks, and culture centers. Students learn Chinese in a culturally rich language immersion environment. They have opportunities to acquire communication tools to interact with Chinese speakers in a wide range of real life situations.
In addition, students are exposed to many valuable opportunities to explore their future career. In past summers some students have found jobs in China during their participation in the program.
