The Chinese Studies minor gives undergraduates in a wide variety of majors the opportunity to take an interdisciplinary set of courses that can combine social sciences, humanities, language, and other disciplines relating to China and Chinese culture. The minor thus provides students with the opportunity to highlight their area studies background and prepares them for higher-level studies on China, Chinese culture and language. Chinese studies minors are highly encouraged to participate in a study abroad program either in China.
Students who wish to minor in Chinese Studies should complete 15 credit hours including at least nine credit hours at the 3000 level or above. Students must complete at least 6 hours in a CHIN course and may obtain credit for no more than two courses from a single other course prefix. A grade of C or higher is required in all minor courses.
