Study abroad is an indispensable component of Chinese major. We strongly recommend every Chinese minor and Chinese major student attend a study abroad program, whether summer program or semester-long exchange program in China.
UConn has semester-long exchange programs with Fudan University, East China Normal University, Shanghai Jiao tong University, and Ningbo Nottingham University in mainland China, Hong Kong University in Hong Kong, National Chengchi University in Taiwan, and National University of Singapore in Singapore. In addition, students may choose to attend third-party language programs, such as CET Academic programs in China, Princeton in Beijing, Associated College in China, and other programs.
Professor Chunsheng Yang has led two Summer Intensive study abroad programs in Tianjin, China. UConn has recently contracted with East China Normal University for a new Summer Intensive Study Abroad program. We are planning to run the program for Summer 2022 again.
Here are some videos from previous summer study abroad trips.
