Summer/Semester Programs

CET in China:

CET programs have been established in Beijing, Harbin, Kunming, and Shanghai with different opportunities based on location.

In Beijing there are two types of programs, a Chinese Language Immersion Program and a Chinese Studies Program. The Immersion Program requires students to pledge to speak exclusively in Mandarin for the entire duration of the program. The Chinese Studies Program offers a 50-50 study with Mandarin language taught exclusively in Mandarin and content courses on Chinese history, politics, and culture taught in English. Harbin¹s CET immersion program offers individually tailored advanced language and content independent studies taught exclusively in Mandarin. The CET program in Shanghai not only offers intensive Mandarin Chinese (in Chinese) and courses on Chinese economics and international relations (in English), but also offers internships at international and local companies.

For more information on all of these programs please contact our Chinese language coordinator Dr. Xianmin Liu, (xianmin.liu@vanderbilt.edu) or browse CET¹s general website (www.cetacademicprograms.com).
