Culturally, socially, and politically Chinese is a language of global significance. Countless works of philosophy, literature, science, health, law, art, history, religion, and political science have been written in this language over four thousand years of history. Chinese and English share the distinction of being the world’s most widely spoken languages.
- In both Chinese and Japanese there are three dedicated, full-time faculty members (two native speakers of the target language, the other of English).
- Carleton College's Asian Languages & Literatures - Chinese graduates have been employed as translators and interpreters. Others have applied their Chinese and Japanese language training in such diverse areas as law, business, education, the arts, and diplomatic service, and in a wide variety of graduate and professional programs.
