Hamilton’s Associated Colleges in China (ACC), based in Beijing, is among the top Chinese language programs. Participants pledge to speak only Chinese, and it’s challenging, but students receive the support they need to fly high. They gain advanced language proficiency, make the most of cultural opportunities, and develop an understanding of China’s people, economy, and educational system.

Real-World Learning

Students receive individualized guidance and instruction, improving their language skills through an interactive curriculum. They meet Chinese citizens during field trips, hear regular guest lecturers, and make public presentations to Chinese and American communities. En route, they examine their own beliefs and values to develop a deeper appreciation of cultures different than their own.

Independent Research

Associated Colleges in China is the only study-abroad program in Beijing that has an independent research project component, or dúlìbàogào, which is offered only for fall and spring students. The research project allows students to engage more fully in specific facets of Chinese culture, society, or history.

Internship Program

Through a partnership with CRCC of Asia, this unique experience allows students to gain insight into Chinese business culture and develop a professional network.
