About the Program

Witness history in the making as Shanghai continues to develop at an unprecedented pace. With this cosmopolitian city as your classroom, you can explore issues of sustainable urbanization, economic reforms, or Chinese politics and foreign policy while living with Chinese roommates and studying Chinese Language. 

About Shanghai

Shanghai has grown exponentially in the last hundred years—from a colonial trading port to a massive international metropolis with a population of 24 million. Known for its fast-paced industry and cosmopolitan vibe, the city is intricately connected with the global flows of commodities and people. It also represents the enormous environmental, economic, and social challenges that are mirrored across China and around the world. Want to study international trade or sustainable urbanization? Shanghai is your city.

Program Benefits
 
  •  Examine urban planning, international relations, and contemporary Chinese society through 15 credits of coursework in a 21st century mega-city that is both a laboratory and model of urbanization. 
  • Enrich your study of Chinese language and youth culture by living with a Chinese roommate.
  • Complete a capstone research project that you can leverage for future career or academic goals.
  • Participate in weekly cultural activities to explore another side of Shanghai. These may include cooking classes, tours of manufacturing facilities, or visits to farming communities in Shanghai’s suburbs. 
  • Complement and contextualize your understanding of China’s largest metropolis through a field study trip that explores China’s social, economic, and geographic diversity.

Scholarships

IFSA scholarships are primarily need-based and factor in any additional cost your study abroad program might have over home school tuition. The awards are $500 for summer programs, $1,500 for semester programs and $2,500 for full year programs. These scholarships may apply to any IFSA program, with the exception of our custom programs.
