The China Study Program provides an opportunity for Economics majors in the College of Arts & Sciences to combine the College's foreign language requirement with an emphasis on the economics of China.
Students interested in the China Study Program must take the following courses in their freshmen or sophomore year: Chinese 1110 and Chinese 1120.
In the summer after the freshmen or sophomore year, students in the China Study program may choose to complete the College's foreign language requirement by enrolling in the study-abroad program at the Chinese Language and Cultural Institution in Beijing, China. Through the generosity of alumni, the Department for Economics is able to offer on a competitive basis a China Study Program scholarship to partially offset the cost of the study-abroad program.
Alternatively, students in the China Study Program may complete the College's foreign language requirement by taking Chinese 2110 and Chinese 2120.
Internships in China or other Asian countries, varying from 1-4 weeks, may also be available for students in the China Study Program. Contact the Department of Economics for additional information.
