Student Profile - Rexroad Simons
"Three months at Peking University would provide the ultimate immersion experience and allow me to both drastically improve my Chinese proficiency while exploring the boundaries of my comfort zone and really experiencing a culture other than my own for the first time."
Student Profile - Meli Musson
"I love to travel but had never been to anywhere in Asia. As an international relations major, I have taken many classes about Chinese culture, economy, and politics and felt like the ideal way to learn more would be to experience life in China first hand."
On Campus Gateway Course: ChinGen 101, "How to be Modern in China"
Offered during Winter as part of the "Gateways to the World" program, the seminar course above is recommended to help you prepare for your time abroad. Additional consideration during the application process for this program will be given to students taking this course.
Surrounded by the rich culture of this paradoxically ancient and modern city, students will engage in coursework and work with faculty on the prestigious Peking University (PKU) campus, located just outside the heart of China’s bustling capital. They will get the opportunity to interact with PKU students in a variety of activities on campus including athletic and musical groups, Chinese art and calligraphy, tai chi and woo shoo.
