CIEE: China in a Global Context

Program Overview

The China in a Global Context program is designed to provide you with a deeper understanding of China as it emerges to take a more influential role in world affairs. You will be introduced to the language, colonial history, foreign policy, political development, and social issues that have either impeded or given rise to modern China. Language classes and related language clinics and tutoring sessions are taught in Mandarin Chinese, and area studies courses are taught in English.
