Designed for students with an interest in Chinese area studies and any level of previous study of Chinese language, the Beijing Chinese Studies program provides students with an opportunity for in-depth learning about China from a broad perspective of topics. Required language study ensures a linqulstlc and cultural connection with the area studies topics and related field trips.

The Beijing Chinese Studies program offers area studies coursework in English, plus Chinese language study. During the eight-week summer term, students take 11 hours of Chinese language, plus a mandatory core course titled "21st Century Beijing" taught by the program's Academic Director. The curricula of these two courses are linked. The language classes are offered at three different levels (beginning through high intermediate), though advanced students, including heritage learners, can also be accommodated. In addition to language and the core course, students also take one elective course, and choose from a list of topics in a range of disciplines: history, politics, economics, philosophy and literature. All area studies coursework is taught in English. Students live and study at Capital Normal University, and live with Chinese roommates. Classroom work is supplemented with excursions around Beijing to historical and cultural sites.

Intended audience: LSA undergraduates (rising sophomores and above) with any level of Chinese language background and interest in China.

Course Requirements: Exams, oral presentations (language class), and reports.

Class Format: Language classes, lectures, and faculty-led site visits tied to specific classes.
