Study Abroad—Middlebury School in China

The School in China offers semester- and yearlong programs to college undergraduates at three sites: Beijing, Kunming, and Hangzhou. Students with a background in Chinese commit to linguistic and cultural immersion by adhering to the Middlebury Language Pledge®.

Students seeking a Master of Arts (MA), specifically geared toward Teaching Chinese as a Second Language, can attend the six-week summer program over a series of summers, or combine two summers on the Vermont campus with one academic year at the Middlebury Institute of International Studies at Monterey. Furthermore, there is generous need-based financial aid available.
