Study in China

Why Study in China?

Immerse yourself in Chinese culture as you explore the language and rich history of China!

Spring 2016

Our partnerships in China allow you to study away while maintaining your student status here at Missouri State University. This means any scholarships, financial aid, and even military TA you receive is still applicable while studying in China!

Study in China is also the cheapest study abroad option at MSU. A semester in China, including plane tickets and all fees, can cost about the same or less than staying here for the semester.

While abroad, you will also find many employment opportunities to build your résumé and pay for expenses. Past students have found work doing everything from teaching English to modeling.

Choose one of our three universities for either one semester or a year long stay. Course credits are transferable from China to MSU.



Dalian is a port city located in the Liaoning province and is well-known for being an international logistics and shipping hub. Along with Chinese language and culture courses, MSU students studying at Liaoning Normal University have the option to take both general education and general business courses.
