ACC Update: Spring 2021, Summer 2021, and Summer/Fall 2021 Program (Posted September 21, 2020)
It is with deep regret that we must inform you that Hamilton College has reluctantly decided to suspend operation of ACC’s Spring 2021 semester. This decision was made due to the continuing uncertainty caused by COVID-19 and the restrictions for travel to China. Regrettably, ACC cannot replicate in Beijing the same health and safety standards for testing, monitoring, and caring that Hamilton provides its students in Clinton, N.Y. More ...
Hamilton’s Associated Colleges in China, based in Beijing, is among the top Chinese language programs. Participants pledge to speak only Chinese, and it’s challenging, but students receive the support they need to fly high. They gain advanced language proficiency, make the most of cultural opportunities and develop an understanding of China’s people, economy and educational system.

Real-World Learning

Students receive individualized guidance and instruction, improving their language skills through an interactive curriculum. They meet Chinese citizens during field trips, hear regular guest lecturers and make public presentations to Chinese and American communities. En route they examine their own beliefs and values to develop a deeper appreciation of cultures different than their own.

Independent Research

Associated Colleges in China is the only study-abroad program in Beijing that has an independent research project component, or dúlìbàogào, which is offered only for fall and spring students. The research project allows students to engage more fully in specific facets of Chinese culture, society or history.
