(Welcome to the Chinese Program at the University of Notre Dame!)
Language classes are taught from the beginning through advanced levels. The program offers a wide range of courses in English on Chinese literature, political science, culture, history, religion, anthropology, philosophy, and film.
Students are encouraged to study abroad in Beijing, Shanghai, and Taipei for a summer, semester, or year and to participate in international internships and research opportunities.
In addition to our rigorous curriculum, we are known for our success in fostering a vibrant learning community outside the classroom. As one of our alumni says, when you join the Chinese Program, you join a family. Our students enthusiastically participate in our moon festival celebration to open the fall semester and our signature Chinese annual speech contest in April. In between, other cultural and extra-curricular activities include movie nights, Chinese language tables, and peer tutoring.
Arts and Letters students from every major succeed in business, graduate or professional school, or full-time service. Learn more about the career outcomes of all of our graduates, including Chinese majors.
