Chinese Studies and Interdisciplinary Programs

Chinese language study through CHIN 301 satisfies the language requirement for the international studies major. A year of Chinese language study, and up to two courses about China offered in the Department of World Languages, Literatures, and Cultures count towards a major or minor in Asian Studies.

Foreign Language Assistants

In addition to classroom learning, students continue to practice Chinese in small group practice sessions led by Chinese foreign language assistants (FLAs). Through dynamic and interactive activities, classroom lessons are reinforced while the foreign language assistants also offer students direct interaction with contemporary Chinese culture. The foreign language assistants also participate in, and often organize, the many cocurricular activities held throughout the year.
