Harvard Summer Program in Beijing, China

3/23/20: In light of the significant and prolonged uncertainty surrounding the coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) pandemic, Harvard Summer School is suspending the operation of our 2020 study abroad programs. For further travel resources, please visit the Harvard Global Support Services website and Harvard’s coronavirus website which is frequently updated – and contains the latest announcements, guidance and resources.

Intensive Chinese language and cultural immersion

The Harvard Beijing Academy offers you the opportunity to complete a full year of Chinese language coursework in the summer term. Your study of language is complemented and deepened through extensive extracurricular activities and a mid-term Social Study Project.


Students interested in intensive Chinese coursework for the summer 2020 session are encouraged to consider enrolling in an 8-credit course at Harvard Summer School in Cambridge.
