IFSA Study Abroad
21st Century City

IFSA's 21st Century City program is an exciting opportunity to immerse yourself in the cosmopolitan city of Shanghai, study issues of sustainable urbanization, economic reforms, or Chinese politics and foreign policy. With the city as your classroom, you'll live with a Chinese roommate and study Chinese language, as you find your home in a vibrant, student-friendly neighborhood where the IFSA program center sits just around the corner from the prestigious Shanghai University of Finance and Economics (SUFE).

You'll impress future employers with your ability to communicate with one of the most important economies in the world, and you'll have the opportunity to participate on an extended field study trip that introduces you to the diverse social, economic, and geographic realities that exist within China's borders. Take classes such as Chinese Society in the 21st Century City, China: Economic Giant, Sino-U.S. Relations: Superpower and Realignment, and more.


IFSA, a non-profit educational organization, is driven to provide you a high-quality academic and cultural experience with the support services you need, and the fees you don’t – such as no application or transcript fees. Our on-site staff serve as advisors, counselors, and mentors who will help you make the most of your experience and guide you throughout the semester.
