This program, housed within the Beijing University campus and affiliated with American University, is designed to meet the diverse needs and interests of Knox students studying China. Single-semester and year-long study options are available. The program offers a general studies track that gives students the opportunity to combine Chinese language study with courses in history, art and literature, business and economics, and other areas of Chinese society.

A distinct language-immersion track allows students to concentrate more exclusively on Chinese language study. The program also maintains an extensive internship program. Study trips on weekends in the Beijing area plus a variety of major group trips across China are woven into the program's calendar.

Prerequisites: one year of Chinese language plus additional courses in Chinese studies.
Credits: 4.5 (Fall or Spring semester) or 9 (year).

Program advisors: Professor Weihong Du and Ms. Shuhan Shipplett.
