With 30-years of experience, over a dozen programs, and professionally-staffed sites in Beijing, and our Open Campus Block Network center in Shanghai, CIEE offers students a variety of transformational study abroad programs in China.

Explore the Great Wall, Tiananmen Square, and the French Concession, and gain a new understanding of China’s past and present.  Immerse yourself in the culture with co-curricular activities at the theater, outdoor markets, and local events. Sample life in a rural community with a service project; explore sustainability in Beijing; intern with a local company in Shanghai; or take your Mandarin to the next level in Nanjing.

Homestays, peer language tutors, cultural activities, and excursions to local and regional sites will give you deep insight into China’s history, and a new perspective on its future.
