About the Program

Spend your summer in China's biggest city and financial center! Over eight weeks you will improve your Chinese language skills and gain a deeper understanding of China's economy, society, and modern worldview. Your Chinese roommate or host family will help you discover all that Shanghai has to offer.

About Shanghai

Shanghai has grown exponentially in the last hundred years—from a colonial trading port to a massive international metropolis with a population of 24 million. Known for its fast-paced industry and cosmopolitan vibe, the city is intricately connected with the global flows of commodities and people. It also represents the enormous environmental, economic, and social challenges that are mirrored across China and around the world. Want to study current global issues or the world’s most-spoken language? Shanghai is your city.

Program Benefits

 
  • Select any combination of 9 credits: survey Chinese society or economy paired with a Chinese language course or internship, or focus exclusively on intensive language study. 
  • Dive into the bustling metropolis of Shanghai to explore the major social and economic transformations in Chinese society and practice your Chinese language inside and outside of the classroom. 
  • Distinguish yourself professionally and network within the Chinese business culture as an intern at a national or multi-national company, arts-related organization, NGO, think tank, or government organization.
  • Register for intensive Chinese language to rapidly improve your language skills, live with a host family, and take a language pledge. 

Scholarships

IFSA scholarships are primarily need-based and factor in any additional cost your study abroad program might have over home school tuition. The awards are $500 for summer programs, $1,500 for semester programs and $2,500 for full year programs. These scholarships may apply to any IFSA program, with the exception of our custom programs.
