Program Description

Luoyang Foreign Languages University created its postgraduate American Studies program in 1986. The program offers courses in American History, American Intellectual History, American Society and Culture, American Politics, American Economics, and International Relations Theories. Each year, approximately ten students receive an M.A. degree from the program; it is one of the few M.A. programs in China which offers all courses in English.
