About Shanghai

Shanghai has grown exponentially in the last hundred years—from a colonial trading port to a massive international metropolis with a population of 24 million. Known for its fast-paced industry and cosmopolitan vibe, the city is intricately connected with the global flows of commodities and people. It also represents the enormous environmental, economic, and social challenges that are mirrored across China and around the world. Want to study current global issues or the world’s most-spoken language? Shanghai is your city.


Program Highlights
  • Select any combination of 9 credits: survey Chinese society or economy paired with a Chinese language course or internship, or focus exclusively on intensive language study. 
  • Dive into the bustling metropolis of Shanghai to explore the major social and economic transformations in Chinese society and practice your Chinese language inside and outside of the classroom. 
  • Distinguish yourself professionally and network within the Chinese business culture as an intern at a national or multi-national company, arts-related organization, NGO, think tank, or government organization.
  • Register for intensive Chinese language to rapidly improve your language skills, live with a host family, and take a language pledge.

PLEASE BE AWARE that most IFSA-Butler programs are "hybrid" programs, with some credits earned from IFSA-Butler University and some from the host university. IFSA issues a single Butler University transcript with all of your courses and grades, but If you take courses from both IFSA-Butler and the host school you will need transcripts from both schools in order to receive transfer credit for all of your courses.
