Program Description: Study abroad in Shanghai and experience life in a city that’s shaping the global economic scene. As China’s largest city, major port town, and “Gateway to the West,” Shanghai is a rapidly growing metropolis that many young Chinese consider a golden land of opportunity. Shanghai may be all modern on the outside, but the city’s ancient past is tucked just under its iconic, modern skyline; just explore its many parks, canals, and bridges to catch a glimpse of Shanghai’s rich history. Take classes at the CEA Shanghai Center and our partner institutions, East China Normal University and Shanghai Normal University. Immerse yourself in local student life as you take classes alongside Chinese and other international students, while honing your Mandarin skills, taking business courses, studying East Asian Studies, Global Studies, or Communications (Offered in conjunction with the University of Arizona). No matter where your academic, personal, and career interests lie, you’ll find the right program in Shanghai.
