CET's Chinese Studies program highlights what many consider to be the most meaningful way to study abroad: immersion into the local environment. Every aspect of the program emphasizes Beijing--the program's capstone course, 21st Century Beijing, examines Beijing as a reflection of critical issues in contemporary China; students share rooms with Capital Normal University students; faculty-led field trips visit local sites; language classes require students to practice their skills out in the local environment.

Long considered CET's "gem", the Harbin program attracts students who are up to the challenge of true immersion into an environment with few English-speaking foreigners. Students abide by a full-time language pledge and explore Harbin, a location chosen for its standard Mandarin, with Chinese roommates. The curriculum, perfect for students with research interests, includes one-on-two drill classes, small group electives and student-designed independent study classes--a student favorite.
