Villanova students stand on the Great Wall of China.

Chinese Studies offers students extensive instruction in Chinese language coupled with interdisciplinary studies that position the language and culture of China within subject areas with global significance.

The Chinese language is spoken by over one billion people, making it the most spoken language in one country in the world, while it continues to gain global ascendancy and influence. Students will study Chinese to advanced levels, including taking courses on translation, with a capstone thesis partially written in Chinese. Sitting for external proficiency exams provides language certification, and a required Study Abroad experience provides experiential learning that re-enforces cultural literacy.
