The Tradition & Modernity in Taiwan (TMT) program provides participants with an immersive introduction to Mandarin Chinese and hands-on coursework in the history, culture, politics, and contemporary issues facing one of Asia's most vibrant democracies. Participants explore the unique ways Taiwan has responded to challenges all modern societies face, while gaining a better understanding of an increasingly important region of the world.
