Explore China through the classroom.


The Beijing Center (TBC) offers a comprehensive set of seminar-style courses on China across 13 disciplines that allows you to understand the complexities of China while advancing toward graduation and preparing you for a variety of careers in the global marketplace. Students should be aware that TBC’s curriculum is as academically intensive as many other university programs in the United States.

Students and advisors should note that courses at TBC are offered in a regular pattern: fall courses will generally be repeated the following year in that term and spring courses for the next year. Some courses are taught both semesters, and TBC frequently adds courses to those regularly offered to reflect the new interests of students. The spring semester also offers independent studies for returning students.

Please select an academic term to see the current courses available.
