Chinese Studies is an interdisciplinary minor that draws on a broad range of courses in language, literature, film, history, and politics. The minor can complement any concentration, deepening students' global competencies, cross-cultural perspectives, and awareness of a range of important cultural and social issues.
The knowledge and skills acquired through the advanced study of a foreign language prepare them for a diverse and increasingly international workplace and for further study in graduate school. Career possibilities include jobs in translation and interpreting, international affairs, nonprofit work, media and journalism, and business.
Course availability may vary from semester to semester. Some courses may be in development and offered at a later time. Students seeking to pursue alternative coursework to fulfill the minor should consult with their advisors.
