Study Abroad in China with CEA

Shanghai Shanghai

Experience China

China may be home to one of the world’s oldest civilizations (dating back to the 17th century BC), but it also boasts one of the world’s most modern cities: Shanghai. With a population of 1.3 billion, China’s economy is the second-largest in the world, yet majestic landscapes and ancient villages still surround China’s influential commerce centers, like Shanghai, Beijing, and Hong Kong. China may encompass a vast, thought-provoking history, but its eyes are on the future. Studying abroad in Shanghai with CEA offers students the opportunity to observe social and economic change up close as it unfolds.
