CIEE China in a Global Context Program in Shanghai, China
You can get a lot done in 5,000 years, just ask the Chinese! They invented tofu, toilet paper, movable type, and more – changing the world in the process. In Shanghai, you’ll learn about China’s dramatic emergence on the world stage, study Chinese language at your level, and live with a Chinese family or students. Whether you’re into the humanities or social sciences, you’ll get to know this vibrant country, and continue your growth into a global citizen.
Study abroad in Shanghai you will:
- Choose from a wide range of courses in international affairs, Chinese politics, economics, history, and society taught in English
- Study Mandarin Chinese at all levels with support from peer language tutors and language clinic instructors, or choose not to study a language and focus entirely on area studies coursework
- Learn outside the classroom through a weeklong excursion to Taiwan and learn new perspectives about cross-strait relations, or choose from other program field trips
- Live with a Chinese host family or on-campus with a Chinese or program roommate
