"The cradle of civilization."
As the proud capital of modern China, Beijing is not only the modern political, cultural and educational center of China, but holds the biggest collection of ancient sites and relics in the nation. Beijing has been at the center of China and the heart and soul of politics and society for more than 5,000 years. If the pace of change in the city today is anything to judge by, Beijing is determined to stay at the forefront of Chinese civilization.
A world-renowned ancient cultural city, Beijing is a flourishing metropolis, boasting many scenic spots and historical monuments, precious artifacts and world-famous architectural wonders, such as: the Forbidden City, which was the imperial palace of the Ming and Qing dynasties; the Summer Palace, a summer resort for the Qing court, sitting within the largest Chinese-style garden in existence; The Great Wall, the only man-made construction on earth visible from outer space; The Ming Tombs, the mausoleums of 13 emperors of the Ming Dynasty; The Temple of Heaven, where the Ming and Qing emperors prayed for good harvests; and Tiananmen Square, located in the heart of the capital, known as one of the largest city squares in the world.
Loyola's 2015 Study Law Abroad Program will take advantage of many of these facilities and institutions to introduce students to the study and practice of law in a foreign culture.
The Beijing Center Campus
The Beijing Center (TBC) is a study abroad program established in 1998 to provide Jesuit university students with premier comprehensive education about China. TBC has been home to Loyola's undergraduate China program since 1998. Students from more than 25 U.S. Jesuit institutions have studied at TBC.
The university lies in a residential area of Beijing. This setting provides tremendous opportunity to gain a much deeper insight into Chinese culture and lifestyles. From the family that makes homemade dumplings in a nearby restaurant, to the man that fixes bicycles right outside your student dorm, opportunities to gain a deep, intimate, and real insight into China await.
