Flagship encourages students from all academic backgrounds to participate, as Chinese can be a useful skill towards any professional career. In previous years, Flagship applicants held majors in music, biology, political science, and business. In fact, our Flagship Program is designed for students learning Chinese at different levels. At the domestic institution, students are placed in classes that are specific to their proficiency levels. With individualized assistance, students are able to reach advanced low-mid proficiency, required for the Capstone year in China. Students with little to no background in Chinese are strongly encouraged to enroll in your Flagship University's Summer Chinese courses (please refer to your Flagship program for more information).
