Degrees Offered: Minor

The Chinese Studies Program offers unique opportunities to study Chinese, China’s ancient civilization, and its contemporary culture. At present four levels of Chinese are offered, which, in combination with seminars such as the Chinese Cinema, Chinese Language Origins, and Chinese Belief Systems, form an integral part of the program and important preparation for participating in the Chinese Exchange Program. Students who spend an academic year in China return with highly functional language skills and a rich knowledge of Chinese society. Students are able to pursue a minor and will eventually be able to pursue a major in Chinese Language and Culture.
