Program Description:
As one of Asia’s most sought-after destinations, Shanghai is a magnet for adventurers. The city holds a special fascination for foreign visitors, particularly during this time of great economic and social transformation in China. With over twenty million people, Shanghai serves as the gateway to the Changjiang (Yangtze) River basin and is poised to become the new global financial center of East Asia, eclipsing Hong Kong and other nearby power centers. With its lively, bustling major thoroughfares, and cultural history in art, music, theater, ballet, opera, and cinema, Shanghai provides a dynamic and exciting laboratory for Lexia students to study the new China and its move toward reforms.

The Lexia in Shanghai Area Studies and Culture Program introduces students to the language, history, politics, economics, and culture of China, placing this fascinating country in the regional context of East Asia. With over 20 million people, Shanghai serves as the gateway to the Changjiang (Yangtze) River basin and is poised to become the new global financial center of South Asia. Shanghai provides a dynamic and exciting laboratory for Lexia students to study the new China and its move towards reforms. Coursework, language training, excursions, and field research projects help students to understand the local culture and to confront the issues facing this nation with its dynamic economy.

No prior knowledge of Mandarin is required. However, intensive language training is provided, thereby helping students to develop the skills and confidence to live, study, and conduct research in a foreign country.

In addition to the language training students will also be encouraged to partake in several scheduled activities in Mandarin. Social encounters with Chinese nationals, as well as organized field trips, all contribute to a greater understanding of China.
