Study Abroad in China | IFSA Butler Study Abroad Opportunities

FUTURE-FOCUSED STUDY ABROAD
China

China’s growing economic significance and influence (it’s the world’s second-largest economy), social complexity and political importance make it a unique place to study, and the relationship between the U.S. and China will have a vital impact on the evolution of global governance and the world’s future.

With many ethnic groups represented, China offers a multicultural environment for eye-opening cultural experiences and an introduction to different perspectives. And with a history of civilization of almost 5,000 years, China offers amazing places of cultural and historic importance for you to explore –from the imperial capital of Beijing and the iconic skyline of Shanghai to the stunning landscapes and diverse communities of China’s interior provinces.

By studying abroad in China you will learn about Chinese language and culture, and you will develop a strong international network – setting yourself apart from others in a global marketplace.
