Beijing Chinese Studies Program
A Unique Combination of Chinese Language and Areas Studies for All Students 

wood pagoda CET's Chinese Studies program highlights what many consider to be the most meaningful way to study abroad: immersion into the local environment. Every aspect of the program emphasizes Beijing--the program's capstone course, 21st Century Beijing, examines Beijing as a reflection of critical issues in contemporary China; students share rooms with Capital Normal University students; faculty-led field trips visit local sites; language classes require students to practice their skills out in the local environment. CET's Chinese Studies program provides students the true China experience they seek.
