Chinese Minor

China is an increasingly important player on the world stage economically, politically and culturally. With China as an important business and political partner of the United States and the world, there is a growing need for students with strong Chinese language skills.

The minor programs give students majoring in other disciplines the language background they need to broaden and enhance career opportunities. A foundation in a foreign language increases understanding of the scholarly, scientific, and technical information of our foreign allies. View minor requirements in the Undergraduate Catalog.

Native and heritage speakers of Chinese may earn up to 6 units for CHNS 301 and/or CHNS 302 by taking the department's Challenge Exam.
