The Chinese Studies program opens the way to various fields such as Chinese politics, economy, history or archaeology. To study Chinese means to study a culture, as well as a people. Chinese society is a rich heritage of novels, short stories, poetry, drama, and, more recently,film, reflecting the values and experiences of this great people.
The program also helps you to understand the language, what makes it powerful, and how it actually functions in Chinese society. To be effective in a Chinese environment, learning the language is half the battle, but knowing about the culture behind the language is the other.
