Students live in the Pepperdine owned Shanghai Jia, meaning house. The Pepperdine facility is located in the French Concession area of Shanghai near the American Consulate. The facility houses student rooms, the visiting faculty apartment, classrooms, a library, a computer lab, a student center, laundry facilities, and the program office. The Jia is conveniently situated between two subway stations and two bus stops.
A weeklong educational field trip (EFT) is included in both the fall and spring semesters of each academic year program. Typically, one EFT goes to a destination where the program language is spoken, while the other is to a neighboring country. Some locations students in the Shanghai program have visited in the past include Vietnam, Shangrila, Bejing, Xi'an, Cambodia, and Tibet.
The Listening Summit is a three-day gathering in each location, with a select group of Pepperdine students and local college students from the program cities who are committed to listening and engaging with one another. The summit features distinguished speakers, cultural exchanges, and interactive discussions that leave the student diplomats with an enriched experience and new friends in their host city.
In all of our International Programs, students are encouraged to join local organizations or participate in activities that allow them to meet and interact with locals for a more intensive intercultural experience. Shanghai offers a range of activities that will make your study here meaningful and culturally enriching. Throughout the year you will have the opportunity to attend shows, service activities, and trips to museums and cultural sites throughout the city, and participate in language exchanges with other Chinese college students from Fudan University.
