Study in Shanghai with IFSA

Language, Literature, and Culture Studies

IFSA’s legacy as a top-notch study abroad organization emerged by supporting students in the pursuit of cultural studies, languages and literatures around the world. IFSA’s proprietary CHART database currently contains an astonishing 6,000 classes recently taken by students in these areas of study spanning over 100 programs. Some of these opportunities are exclusive to IFSA students while others are available through IFSA’s network of elite partner institutions abroad. Your unique needs and preferences will help you quickly home in on the ideal fit for your academic goals and aspirations for your term abroad. The CHART tool can also help you uncover internship, service learning, research, and field work opportunities or identify potential classes which align with the requirements of your home institution’s degree plan. You might consider enrolling in IFSA’s Community & Culture™ class, an opportunity for a deep dive cultural exploration of your host city with students from institutions across the United States.
