Want to study abroad in a city where ancient traditions meet cutting-edge modernity? A city that’s one of the world’s largest and fastest-growing? A city that allows you to immerse into East Asian culture, learn Mandarin, and eat amazing food, all while experiencing student life in China’s economic center? Shanghai is the destination for you! Just 150 years ago, Shanghai was a small fishing village; today, it’s China’s most influential commercial center and home to 24+ million people. One look at the waterfront skyline’s blend of ancient and modern, and you’ll understand why Shanghai is the ideal place to witness globalization in action. Shanghai’s rapid growth highlights issues like global trade, communication, cultural change, and access to resources.
Imagine immersing into student life in the world’s oldest civilization, where mist-topped mountains give way to sprawling urban centers and ancient temples sit next to uber-modern skyscrapers. The world has China to thank for toilet paper, nail polish, fireworks, the compass, the hoverboard, and a hundred other inventions that changed the course of history. With written records dating back more than four thousand years—and archeological sites indicating human habitation for more than 1.5 million years—this ancient land has long been a center of innovation and inspiration. Studying abroad in Shanghai with CEA allows you to explore the diverse landscapes and cultures that make China unique.
