Undergraduate Chinese Programs

If students take equivalent courses in the regular and oral tracks (e.g., JPN 101 and 111),  both grades are recorded in the transcript, but only one set of credits may count toward degree requirements. For students on financial aid or receiving Veterans Affairs benefits, the credit adjustment may affect the amount of aid or benefits received.

B.A. in Chinese

The B.A. in Chinese requires thirty-four hours of coursework in Chinese language and linguistics or literature. See the major requirements for more information.

Minor in Chinese

The minor in Chinese requires a more directed body of coursework in Chinese language and literature. Students must take five courses for a total of fifteen credit hours from the approved course list. In the case of native speakers, they will be required to take five non-language skill courses. See the minor requirements for more information.

Certificate in Chinese

The certificate in Chinese is for those students who wish to supplement other fields of study with some basic Chinese language and culture. Students must take five courses for a total of fifteen credit hours from the approved course list. See the certificate requirements for more information.

Prerequisites for all Chinese courses may be waived with the consent of the instructor for students with prior experience in Chinese language who have completed a language placement exam. All Chinese majors are required to consult with their faculty adviser or the Student Adviser (Moore 378) prior to registering for each semester. Any student contemplating application into our graduate program are advised to  discuss their plans with their adviser as well.
