Year 1: Fall and Spring terms in China, Nigeria or the UK
Your first 2 terms of USPP will be taught in China, Nigeria or the UK. CNAU-approved faculty use US teaching styles to help you become familiar with an American university classroom before you even set foot in the United States.
The shorter Fall term curriculum allows you to adjust to the USPP program, your instructors and life as a USPP student. Spring term courses channel you toward your area of focus, through one of 2 tracks:
- Business and Humanities for business, arts, science, and social science majors
- Engineering and Computer Science for engineering and computing majors
