Study Abroad in China


Why China?
Traveling to China immerses students in a culture that’s thousands of years old and changing with every passing year. It is a country with a complex and ancient history, unique traditions in philosophy and the arts, and some of the world’s most inventive food. In the cities, historic neighborhoods are tucked alongside ancient monuments and busy international business districts, while the countryside offers scenery that’s been inspiring poetry for thousands of years. World Endeavors students in China study Mandarin Chinese, one of the world’s fastest-growing languages.  They also study the culture of a nation that is increasingly important in international affairs, while having an experience that will forever change the way they see the world.

Live in Yantai, China
Located on the Shandong peninsula of northeastern China, Yantai is a picturesque city with a strong commercial and industrial presence in China’s growing economy. For a short time in the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries, Yantai belonged to the British, and it retains an interesting array of historic Western and Chinese architecture. All the conveniences of a modern and growing city are easy to find, but it’s also an authentic city without many of the trappings of tourism. Yantai is known as a place of rich natural beauty, with its coastal elegance, rugged mountainous landscape, and mild weather, perfect for outdoor exploration year-round. The temperate climate makes this a popular vacation destination among the Chinese, especially in the summer. And living in Yantai is a fantastic opportunity to see the rest of China, with a local airport connecting the city to Beijing, Shanghai, Hong Kong, and beyond.
