Chinese Studies & Internship in Beijing

Students smiling together

This is a program for students who want to improve their Chinese, learn about China, and build their résumé, all in one semester. Students pursue an internship at a local organization such as China Central Television orWomen’s Watch Legal Defense Center. They take Chinese language classes and electives taught in English. The program uses its longstanding guanxi (connections) to introduce students to prominent journalists, researchers and professionals in Beijing, a city of movers and shakers. The program is open to students of all Chinese language levels, even absolute beginners.

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.
