Each Summer, a group of students from several Baptist-related colleges study at Peking University. This five-week program, usually conducted from mid-May to mid-June, allows these students to participate in classes taught by some of the foremost professors in the world. The program also allows American students to interact with their Chinese peers and build lasting friendships.
Please contact Dr. Scott Holsclaw to discuss program details, which may vary from year to year, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Students and faculty will have the opportunity to experience the rich and ancient history of China by visiting many famous sites. These include; the Forbidden City, the Great Wall, Tiananmen Square, the Summer Palace, the Temple of Heaven, the Ming Tombs, the Beijing Zoo, and the famous terracotta warriors in the ancient capital of Xian.
On the train trip to Xian in central China, students and professors have a chance to view the Chinese countryside with its small villages and vast landscapes. It is truly an enriching experience.
Ouachita has been sending faculty and students to study and teach in China since 1986. Today, Ouachita holds a special relationship with Peking University.
