Shawnee State University and South China Normal University Exchange Program
The SSU-SCNU exchange program was developed based on an English language immersion research project that has involved education faculty in both universities.
The premise of English immersion is to use English language as the instructional medium to teach content knowledge (science, social studies, etc.) in the PreK-12 classroom.
Dozens of PreK-12 schools in Guangdong and Xi’an provinces have joined the research project, which makes it possible to accept our teacher candidates to student teach in China.
Financial aid and scholarships are available for program participants. Students participating in the program enjoy free room and board and the opportunity to be fully immersed in the Chinese culture. Knowledge of the Chinese language is not required.
If you are interested in a rich and exciting cultural experience, please contact the Center for International Programs and Activities.
