Program Description:
China Banner

Living with a Chinese roommate—in a pairing based on interests and preferences—is one benefit shared by all School in China students, whether in Hangzhou, Kunming, or Beijing. Challenging course work and the Language Pledge round out a highly immersive program for the serious student of Mandarin Chinese.

As China's capital, Beijing is a large and vibrant city particularly marked by rapid economic growth. The city itself has grown tremendously and visitors and residents alike remark at its constant state of change and the contrast between the modern and the ancient.  It is also the center of Chinese cultural "action," and--since it is the capital--a place where politics is central.

Traveling Seminar:

Xi'anBeginning in the Fall of 2018, MiC Beijing will take students on a week-long traveling seminar to Xi'an. The goal of this seminar is to explore the globalization of China through the sites of Xi'an; ancient origin of the Silk Road and center of the modern One Belt One Road initiative. Through interacting with locals, site visits, lectures, and discussions, students will consider Xi'an as a case study for China's political, economic, and historic globalization. This seminar is incorporated into the MiC program curriculum, and is led by MiC Beijing faculty members.
