Student Experience

Summer domestic study + study abroad

To accelerate language learning, Flagship students participate in summer study programs, including the domestic Flagship Chinese Institute (FCI) offered at Indiana University and a summer abroad at one of seven approved universities in China or Taiwan. In addition, to become Flagship certified, students must complete a Capstone year in China, typically during their 4th or 5th year.

Enriching extracurricular activities

Extracurricular events and activities create the opportunity to engage with Chinese language and culture outside the classroom. Typically, students are required to attend five events per semester. Some examples of these special events are our monthly Chinese Tidings lecture series, cultural workshops, and Chinese festivals.
