Preparation for Overseas Program and Internships


The Language Flagship offers overseas programs in Taiwan. See link for the Taiwan Program.
As a part of the Chinese Flagship, students participate in two overseas programs before they graduate. The first of these programs is an overseas experience which both immerses them in the language and prepares them for the Chinese Capstone year.
