As a Chinese major at Calvin, you have the opportunity to further your knowledge through off-campus studies. Engage with the Chinese language and culture through one of Calvin’s many Chinese study abroad experiences.
One of our most significant programs is the Semester in China program, detailed below. Listen to a panel discussion where four Calvin students discuss their experience as participants in the Semester in China program.
Semester in China
- Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, this off-campus program has been suspended. The information on this page is available for reference and planning purposes, but may no longer be accurate. If and when Calvin is able to re-open this and other off-campus programs, information will be provided at the main Off-Campus Programs website. If you have questions or concerns, please contact the Off-Campus Programs office. For years, China was shrouded in mystery to westerners, but now this 1.3 billion person nation has opened itself up to the outside world. Spend a semester alongside expert professors and curious peers studying all things Chinese, both traditional and modern.
May in China
- Offered every spring, this three-week course gives students an opportunity to experience daily life in China by taking them to the large, model urban centers of Beijing and Dalian, as well as to a less developed city like Datong and to the countryside around the Wutai Mountains in northwest China.
IDIS W40 China Business and Engineering
- China’s emerging economy has a large impact on today’s world, especially in business and engineering. During this interim students spend three weeks in China meeting with business and engineering professionals who are part of this reshaping of the global economy.
