With technology, money and other elements of business becoming more globally widespread, now is the time to immerse yourself in a modern foreign language. Chinese Studies, whether combined with another major or studied by itself, can give you background in Chinese language, literature, culture and media. Broaden your horizons by studying one of the oldest surviving languages in the world.
With many opportunities including study abroad and courses taught only in Chinese, you’ll gain a deep understanding of the Chinese way of life, both now and in the past, and combine it with present-day culture and business components. Some sample courses are:
- First and Second Year Chinese
- Chinese Overseas Immersion

With the unique opportunity to study abroad during the summer session, and numerous clubs and organizations on campus to be involved with, you’ll get not only the experience of a lifetime, but also come away with extremely beneficial knowledge to supplement the career of your choice. Students in the Chinese Studies program have the opportunity to study and learn in China by way of an internship. Take advantage of this opportunity by contacting the Chinese Studies department to learn more.
