Established in 1996, the ACC is an intensive Chinese language program administered by Hamilton College, and hosted by the Minzu University of China (MUC) in Beijing.
The curriculum, designed and supervised by experienced American college professors, focuses on studying the Chinese language through individualized instruction with a high level of participation and interaction.
A Chinese-only language pledge is applied and upheld by the professors and instructors. Students are encouraged to interact only in Chinese in order to increase their proficiency in the Chinese language, and also, their understanding of China’s culture and society.
ACC’s Chinese language program has successfully trained over 1,500 students who are linguistically and culturally proficient in Mandarin Chinese, and who can function freely in Chinese-speaking communities.
