The University of Colorado Denver Semester in Beijing program opens doors to greater cultural understanding and in-depth global education. Through a rigorous curriculum, American and Chinese students take courses together in English at the International College Beijing, a joint program between the University of Colorado Denver and China Agricultural University.
With almost one-quarter of the Earth’s population, and the world’s fastest growing economy, China has become an ever-present factor in global politics and daily life affecting Americans.
China’s flourishing modern capital is true to its traditional Chinese roots. Classic Chinese architecture is juxtaposed with the emergence of new technologies and signature global design. Communist China’s capital fuses Confucian harmony with global economic progress in trendy coffee shops, the growing art scene, historical Buddhist temples, edgy fashion districts, bustling factories and a new lifestyle led by an upbeat capitalist generation.
As the rate of globalization continues to accelerate, the world is becoming interconnected by shared commerce, culture, and politics meaning China is no longer far away and strange but close to home and familiar.
