Sino-American CHEPD Program

Coastal Carolina University has been an active member of the Sino-American Cooperation in Higher Education and Professional Development (CHEPD) program since 2007. In addition to hosting 77 students from many partner universities to complete their bachelor and master’s degrees, we have developed three separate experimental class programs to enhance transferability between Chinese partner institutions and CCU. We also send professors each year to teach in China at partnering universities, and we have hosted delegations from the Ministry of Education in China.

Because of its location near the beach, this area of South Carolina enjoys a climate with warm, long summers and mild short winters, so students get to study and live where many people vacation! Airlines provide direct and connecting flights to major cities around the country! Additionally, it is located on the East Coast of the United States within driving distance to many other U.S. attractions such as New York City, Washington D.C. and Orlando. The people are friendly and kind, and the community is a safe, welcoming, and a relaxed place to live and study.
