Overall Experience
January 31, 2019 It Was Life Changing.
I learned a lot about the culture and met new friends. What I love most is the opportunity to be myself without the weight of the reputation I had made in my home university. It was not like I was different person, but it was freeing. - University of the Pacific View Entire Review

A student studying abroad with CIEE: Shanghai - China in a Global Context
I wide number of skills, such as cross-cultural communication and adapting to new situations, quickly and sensitively. I feel like I'm able to see the world with a little more multiplicity. It was absolutely worthwhile. - The University of Texas at Austin View Entire Review
A student studying abroad with CIEE: Shanghai - China in a Global Context
Yes, it was very worthwhile! I learned about other cultures and my own and made very valuable friends. I learned how to be a respectful traveler. I also have decided I want to work in China for a couple years to get to know this new country that I really loved being in. - Hope College View Entire Review
In all honesty, this program was a degree requirement. - The University of Texas at Austin View Entire Review
Don't expect foreign people to know your customs and expectations or even respect them. Worthwhile to be able to travel and live in a different country. - The University of Texas at Austin View Entire Review

About

You can get a lot done in 5,000 years, just ask the Chinese! They invented tofu, toilet paper, movable type, and more – changing the world in the process. In Shanghai, you’ll learn about China’s dramatic emergence on the world stage, study Chinese language at your level, and live with a Chinese family or students. Whether you’re into the humanities or social sciences, you’ll get to know this vibrant country, and continue your growth into a global citizen.

Study abroad in Shanghai and you’ll:
- Choose from a wide range of English-taught courses in international affairs, Chinese politics, economics, history, and society
- Study Mandarin Chinese at all levels with support from peer language tutors and language clinic instructors; or choose not to study a language and focus entirely on area studies coursework
- Learn outside the classroom through a weeklong excursion to Taiwan, and develop new perspectives about cross-strait relations
- Live with a Chinese host family or on-campus with a Chinese or program roommate
