Off-campus Study Options

Reed has developed affiliations with three universities in China—Capital Normal University (Beijing), East China Normal University (Shanghai), Fujian Normal University (Fuzhou)—as well as two universities in Taiwan—the International Chinese Language Program at Taiwan National University (Taipei) and the Chinese Language Center at National Cheng Kung University (Tainan)—where students can study the Chinese language intensively. Depending on the program, students may also take courses in Chinese calligraphy, culture, and Tai Chi. Interested students should check with the Chinese department faculty for recommendations for overseas programs appropriate to the Chinese major.
