International College Beijing


Created in 1994, the International College Beijing (ICB) is a partnership of the University of Colorado Denver (UC Denver) and the China Agricultural University (CAU). ICB offers bachelor of arts degrees with majors in communication or economics.

All courses are taught in English by instructors approved by department chairs and administration. Faculty follow UC Denver curriculum. Students attending ICB take courses that are transcribed on the UC Denver transcript, the same as students attending the UC Denver campus located in downtown Denver.

The ICB academic calendar consists of 14-week fall and spring semesters plus two 3-4 week inter-terms in January and June. Students take 12-16 credits during fall and spring semesters and three credits during the inter-terms.
