MAIS Program Information:
Concordia University (Irvine)’s Master of Arts in International Studies (MAIS) program is an extraordinary opportunity to cultivate academic, cultural, research, and language skills alongside practical work experience in China – all in just one year. The MAIS program exemplifies Concordia’s mission as a Christian university, which encourages students to engage people and cultures worldwide.

After a summer of intensive courses at our Irvine campus, you head to China and immediately start living, working and studying in China. MAIS prepares you to work in China, conduct research for your Capstone Project, and negotiate living on your own in a new culture. You will concentrate in International Business, International Education or International Development, and live in Shanghai, Hangzhou, Kunming or their nearby cities, which are among China’s most important historical, intellectual, cultural and financial centers.
As a result, you will have unique opportunities to build personal and business relationships; globalize your professional resume with international experience and expertise; travel to ancient destinations, futuristic metropolises and cultural wonders; discover and pursue new interests, passions, and dreams.
