Chinese Language and Cultural Studies

Many of our students choose Chinese Lanuage and Cultural Studies as a minor, combining this minor with a disciplinary major such as Global Studies or Ecomonics  will  prepare them for a possible career related to international and global employment opportunities.  In addition to coordinating courses on China in various departments, the Program in Chinese Lanuage and Cultural Studies offers language and culture courses under its own auspices to round out the available offerings.
