While in Beijing, you will take intensive Chinese language courses, totaling 20 hours of class time per week. Small tutoring sessions are also arranged to provide the opportunity for more individualized language training and practice. In addition, you will devote six hours of class time per week to two culture courses taught in English. The culture-course topics vary on occasion, with the following being offered Fall 2019:

  • Chinese Culture with Western Comparisons
  • Modern China in a Global Context

For information on future culture-course offerings, please contact the Chinese Program. Between the language and culture courses, Tufts-in-Beijing participants who successfully complete the full course load can expect to receive a total of 20 Tufts SHUs.
