Overview

 The curriculum focuses on a balanced development of language and cultural competence across proficiency levels. All students are encouraged to participate in the cultural activities organized by the Chinese Club and to immerse themselves in Chinese culture on and off campus. Chinese majors are required to study abroad for one full semester, normally in the fall of their senior year, in an approved program in China.

All incoming students will take the foreign language placement test before registering for a Chinese course. 

Goals:

Students will communicate in Chinese at an intermediate high or advanced low level fluently and accurately with an appropriate breadth of vocabulary, enhance their understanding of the Chinese culture, and develop their critical thinking skills. The Chinese Program uses the Proficiency Guidelines from the American Council on the Teaching of Foreign Language to achieve the learning goals.
