Chinese - BA
A comprehensive array of content courses will enable students to achieve the cultural competencies needed for communicating effectively. All students majoring in Chinese will be strongly encouraged to spend at least one semester abroad in intensive language study at a Chinese university to help them build their language skills while also fostering their cultural competencies.
A Chinese major prepares students for careers in fields ranging from government to business that require or benefit from China-related expertise. The degree also prepares students to transition to graduate programs in the humanities and social sciences as well as to professional schools in areas such as law and information sciences.
