Fall/Spring Semester Program 

PROGRAM LOCATION 

Beijing is a city of contrasts - a modern Asian boom-town that strives to preserve the cultural landscape of its glorious past while all around the glass and steel emblems of its dynamic present flourish.  As the political and cultural capital of China, Beijing attracts people from all over the world.  While its new high-rises and financial institutions testify to its booming economy, remnants of Old Beijing remain.  Streets lined with dumpling and noodle stands, beautiful parks bedecked with pagodas, and 19th century homes with graceful four-walled courtyards still charm visitors from around the world.
