China Program

The USC School of Social Work’s China Program provides innovative education and training opportunities for American and Chinese leaders in business, government, academia and nonprofits. Our mission is to encourage a better understanding of the challenges facing a changing China and to nurture a cross-cultural learning environment that invites intellectual inquiry and facilitates leadership development through community outreach, multidisciplinary collaboration and research, curriculum development, international symposia and scholarly change.

The China Program encourages cross-national and multidisciplinary collaboration among schools within USC and beyond, in addition to providing a platform for USC faculty to experiment with new teaching approaches and explore new research interests.
