COVID-19 Program Updates
Due to global health & safety concerns and travel restrictions related to the coronavirus, Institute for Study Abroad (IFSA) has decided to offer flexible booking options for some of their upcoming programs. Learn more about COVID-19 updates to stay tuned regarding program information.
Beijing’s place at the forefront of Chinese popular culture and social change has deeply influenced new generations of Chinese and has profoundly shaped their views of the world. Examine these issues by interacting with cutting-edge practitioners and scholars in contemporary culture, the arts, and foreign policy. Plus, participate in weekly cultural activities to explore another side of Beijing. These may include Chinese calligraphy lessons, tours of local Hutong neighborhoods, or martial arts workshops.
The Alliance program center is located on the campus of Beijing Language and Culture University (BLCU). You will live in dorms and be paired with a Chinese language partner. A week-long field study trip to provinces such as Yunnan or Qinghai will allow you to explore China’s social, economic, and geographic diversity.
