SST in



Tai chi class

Goshen College began to send students to China in 1980, making Study-Service Term one of the first North American study abroad programs in post-revolutionary China. Today, a knowledge of Mandarin Chinese and the rich culture behind this global power can lead to opportunities in areas such as international business and journalism.

SST has always been based in Sichuan province and is currently located in the city of Nanchong at China West Normal University. Students live with hosts on or near this university campus.

Due to circumstances beyond our control GC’s China program is currently paused.
