USC Professor Emerita Charlotte Furth discusses her adventures in Beijing teaching young Chinese scholars about America.
CET Beijing Janterm Chinese Studies Program
The condensed Janterm gives students all the advantages of a full semester—intensive classes, a language pledge, a local roommate—but in a quarter the time. Students can attend Janterm on its own, or let it lead the way into spring. Whatever students choose, Janterm just about guarantees that they'll arrive on campus in the spring all warmed up and ready to soar.
The program is based at Capital Normal University. The CNU campus is resource-packed and close to public transportation. The CET buildings have been recently renovated—the classrooms are bright, modern, and equipped with air purifiers.
Celebrating the grand reopening of USC Pacific Asia Museum after a year of the seismic retrofit project, the museum will present an exhibit drawn from the museum’s extraordinary collection of over 2,700 costumes and textiles from China, Korea, Japan, India, the Himalayas and Southeast Asia.
