Preparation and Planning

UO Chinese Flagship scholars work with their department adviser(s) to determine the appropriate timing and course enrollment for their capstone year (junior, senior, or super-senior years). The capstone year is designed for advanced-level students who are committed to developing proficiency in Chinese at the "Superior" level (ILR 3/3+). This unique study abroad experience combines academic study, service learning, and a four-month professional internship. Application and orientation to the Flagship capstone year program is coordinated through the UO Flagship office.
