Set in beautiful Hangzhou, Experience China provides a rich, cultural immersion with the comfort and safety of an organized and well-staffed international learning community.
When Marco Polo visited Hangzhou he described it as "the most beautiful and splendid city in the world." As a student in the Experience China (ExC) program you'll have a chance to see for yourself exactly what Marco Polo was referring to.
As an ExC student you will participate in a directed study of Chinese culture alongside your general education courses. The relationship between the United States and China has been described as important not only for the citizens of our two countries, but also for a new era of global development. Position yourself on the leading edge of this new era by immersing yourself in the historic, diverse, and complex culture of China with the ExC program.
Your academic experience with ExC will be enriched by educational excursions to local points of interest, opportunities for independent travel, and a host buddy program with local students.
Participants in the Experience China program enroll in a minimum of 12 credits offered in a module format. In this format, courses are taught one at a time in three-week blocks. You'll enroll in only one course per module. The course descriptions for each term provided here indicate the module the course will be offered. The required China: From Ancient Culture to a Modern Global Force meets at various times throughout the semester, and the optional Mandarin course (4 credits) will meet two evenings each week to best facilitate language learning.
