Dear Chinese Visiting Scholar,
Welcome to Indiana University Bloomington, one of the “Big 10” state universities in the U.S.! As you may be aware, IU is well known for its prestigious Chinese language program and China areas studies.
IU’s Chinese Flagship Center (CFC) is an academic unit under the School of Global and International Studies, College of Arts and Sciences. It was established in 2008 to support an accelerated program of Chinese language learning, and by spring 2013, enrollment in this program has reached more than 50 students majoring in over twenty disciplines. Our Chinese Flagship Center is one of nine in the U.S. The Language Flagship is a national initiative to change the way Americans learn foreign languages through a groundbreaking approach to language education. CFC’s innovative curriculum offers students the opportunity to attain professional level of Chinese proficiency through classroom learning, mentoring, extracurricular activities, domestic and overseas summer programs, direct enrollment at Nanjing University or Tianjin Normal University, and internship in China. The flexible design of the CFC program allows students to major in any IU’s field of study while completing the requirement to achieve superior-level language skills from the Language Flagship. IUCFC also runs the Language Flagship’s only domestic summer Chinese institute: Flagship Chinese Institute (FCI).
