Study Abroad in China! 

Thank you to all who attended our special "Study Abroad in China" Presentation held earlier this semester.  The event was a wonderful and informative session detailing the incredible study abroad programs available in China for semester, full year or summer terms.  These enriching opportunities to study in China are available for a variety of Rice students at all levels of language ability.  Intensive Chinese language, Asian studies, pre-med/global health, service learning and business programs are being highlighted at this time.  Thank you to Dean Nicolas Shumway, Dean of Humanities; Dr. Meng Yeh, Center for the Study of Languages; Dr. Brian Hammer, Associate Director Chao Center for Asian Studies; and China study abroad alumni for helping to present at this exciting event and for all students and faculty who attended.
