Minor

For students who matriculated in Fall 2019 and thereafter, the minor in Chinese requires a minimum of 15 credit hours distributed as follows:

  1. Language Study: Students must complete at least two semesters of the language or the equivalent, beyond the first year.
    • 10000-level language courses do not count toward a major, supplementary major, or minor.

      Students are allowed to use a maximum of 1 credit from language reading courses beyond the first-year level to fulfill requirements of the minor in Chinese.

    • Students with grades lower than B- are not advised to proceed to the next level.
       
  2. Literature and Culture: At least one upper-division 3-credit course in Chinese literature or culture taught by EALC faculty. Any exception must be approved by the Director of Undergraduate Studies. University seminars do not satisfy this requirement.
