Offered biennially for the Spring Semester
Based at Nanjing University, the China Study Group is designed to give Colgate students in general, and International Relations/ Asian Studies concentrators in particular, the opportunity to acquire a thorough knowledge of modern China and to develop proficiency in the Chinese language. By living and travelling in China for a semester, students obtain a firsthand experience with the political, economic and social changes brought forth by the late Deng Xiaoping's reform since 1978, and gain a deeper sense of China's concerns in foreign relations. One year of Chinese language study, or the equivalent, and CORE 165 are prerequisites. Students live in the the University dormitory.
