Dickinson Beijing Center
Twelve Centers. A Global Network.
For more than fifty years, Dickinson has operated its own global study and research centers. These centers immerse students in the study of foreign language. They foster a deeper understanding of the political, social, cultural, and economic histories of the countries and regions in which they are located. And they form a worldwide network of living laboratories from which students can trace the causes and consequences of global forces, examine differing policy responses to global change, and assess and learn from successes and failures.
The Sino-American relationship is an exceedingly complex one, involving both competition and cooperation. Dickinson's center in China is based at Peking University, the first national university of China and commonly regarded as the foremost institution of higher learning in the country.
