The Associated Colleges in China Program, sponsored by Hamilton and several other prestigious institutions, is hosted by the Capital University of Economics and Business in Beijing. There students are immersed in Chinese language instruction and Chinese culture. One-semester programs are offered, but students are strongly encouraged to plan for a two-semester stay. In addition to the China program, students have a number of opportunities to work closely with faculty members in designing projects and conducting research abroad and at the College. Some students receive summer research grants through Hamilton.
