Asian and Middle Eastern Languages & Studies - Chinese - Minor

Our Chinese minor will teach you the language and cultural skills necessary for a career in international business, government service or other professions where Chinese language proficiency is important. This program also contributes to meeting the diverse language needs of students with personal or academic interests in China and its culture.

This minor requires five courses taken in Chinese and one course focused on some aspect of Chinese history, politics, or culture taken in another department or program. Students should see the faculty in the Department of Asian and Middle Eastern Languages and Studies for more information on placement and appropriate course selection.

The minor can only be taken as part of an undergraduate degree program. An average GPA of 2.0 in all Chinese courses as well as a minimum grade of C- must be earned in all courses used for the minor.
