Study Abroad in China

Truman, in partnership with Shanghai University, offers a unique student exchange program for study in China. Located in the largest city in China, Shanghai University gives students an amazing opportunity to experience China firsthand by participating in all the opportunities the city has to give.

This exchange program is offered by the Faculty of Institute of Economics, Institute of Foreign Languages and College of International Exchange at Shanghai University. It consists of two modules: economics or language. Students in the economics module learn about Chinese business, culture and finance, and they live at the Baoshan campus. The language module students study Mandarin and reside at the Yanchang campus. Other English-taught courses include: Chinese culture, operation management, Chinese foreign trade, econometrics and more. Shanghai University also offers an intensive Chinese language program.

Being an exchange program, students pay Truman tuition directly to Truman. This makes payment easy and affordable. Students reside in on-campus dorms and are fully responsible for paying Shanghai University directly for all housing costs.
