Shanghai, China

The Boston University Shanghai Chinese Language & Culture Program offers a semester of study in the vibrant and booming metropolis of Shanghai. This program gives students at beginning levels of Chinese language study a chance to immerse themselves in Chinese culture.

Hosted at Fudan University, and working in collaboration with Fudan's School of Social Development and Public Policy, this program is designed to allow beginning students of the Chinese language and East Asian studies to intensively study Chinese, while also doing coursework in English on traditional and contemporary Chinese culture.
