Welcome to Syracuse Hong Kong!
Syracuse Hong Kong takes full advantage of its connections with leading education institutions, organizations, and businesses across the region. This translates into opportunities for you, both inside and beyond the classroom. Through extended travel seminars, field study, and guided research projects or internships, you will meet and interact with local students and scholars, community and business leaders, journalists, politicians, artists, and entrepreneurs. Though daily life in Hong Kong is distinctly fast-paced, there is another dimension you will discover: the deep cultural connections that center on family, friends, celebration, and tradition.
The Hong Kong Center program is designed to allow students to complete 12–19 credit hours of coursework in a wide range of subjects, including economics, political science, history, religion, Chinese language (Mandarin or Cantonese), and business. Field study, and intensive internships or independent research are key components for students who choose the Syracuse Hong Kong Center option.
This option is for students who want to enroll as full-time semester students at the City University of Hong Kong, where courses will be taught in English and taken alongside Chinese students. The spring semester deadline for this program is September 15.
Talk to recent Syracuse Hong Kong students!
The best way to understand what to expect in Hong Kong is to talk to someone who has already participated in the program. Our Hong Kong global ambassadors had intensive internship experiences, experienced the excitement of Chinese New Year, and met students from all over the world – ask them about Hong Kong!
