The growing importance of China in the world scene means increasing career opportunities for those who choose Chinese as a major. This Chinese Language and Culture major emphasizes strong language training and seeks to instill in students a comprehensive and in-depth knowledge about Chinese culture and literature. Our undergraduate major has steadily grown with each passing year. Many of our students combine a concentration in Chinese with a major in another field such as international relations, business, government, or a science.
Details on the requirements for a major in Chinese Language and Culture are in the Undergraduate Catalog.
We encourage all majors in Chinese to study abroad in a Chinese-speaking location after finishing CHIN 102, CHIN 202 or 206.
When you declare your major in Chinese Studies, you will choose a major advisor. You may ask any of the Chinese faculty to be your major advisor. This advisor will help you select, and must approve, courses to fulfill specific major requirements.
