Chinese Flagship students spend one year—typically their 4th or 5th year—abroad as a Capstone to their Chinese studies. While the Chinese Flagship Capstone has previously operated out of Nanjing, Tianjing, and Beijing, we are currently only sending students to Taiwan. Students are directly enrolled in National Yang-Ming University, learning alongside Taiwanese students in direct enrollment classes related to their majors and academic interests.
In addition to taking content courses at the host university, students also complete an internship with a local organization arranged by The Language Flagship and customized to meet their individual professional goals.
There is also an option to complete a domestic version of the Capstone year in a Flagship immersion program at the Defense Language Institute Foreign Language Center (DLIFLC) in Monterey, California.
Close and individualized guidance from our program staff helps ensure that the Capstone experience is well placed within each student's academic career and successfully implemented.
