The Chinese Flagship program helps students attain near-native proficiency in Mandarin and allows them to apply their language and cultural knowledge abroad through direct enrollment classes at Beijing Union University and a part-time internship. After students have attained a certain level of proficiency through the Flagship program at their home university, they will spend their capstone year at Beijing Union University. With specially-designed curriculum, small classroom settings, excursions within China, and a part-time internship with a local organization during their second semester, Flagship students are able to graduate with a high-proficiency of Chinese, whether in an informal or a professional environment. In addition to language proficiency, during their capstone year, Flagship students are able to gain cultural insights and a profound understanding of Chinese society, which allow our alumni to pursue Chinese-related careers.
