Modern Languages – Chinese

The College of Humanities and Social Sciences offers courses in Chinese for interested students. These courses have three basic objectives:

(1) To develop competence in understanding, speaking, reading, and writing modern languages other than English,

(2) To cultivate an appreciation for the culture and civilization of the people whose language is being studied, and

(3) To provide guidance for students who are preparing for careers in various language fields.

Advanced placement with academic credit will be granted to superior students satisfactorily completing the CEEB Advance Placement Examination in the 2000 level and above. Foreign students whose native language is not English may choose to take 12 additional hours in English in lieu of the regular foreign language requirement.
