Minor in Chinese

About the Minor

In our globalized world, intercultural and multilingual communication is an indispensable asset for the 21st century citizen and worker. As part of the Department of Global Studies and Modern Languages, we offer language instruction rooted in communication and embedded in authentic cultural contexts. Language study opens a world of opportunities for our students, from co-ops and study abroad programs to engagement with global communities here in Philadelphia. Media and technology, as well as travel and commerce, make the study of languages more crucial than ever, for tackling global challenges such as climate change and inequality demand that our students communicate across languages and cultures.

The Chinese minor requires 24.0 credits of language study above Chinese 105. Students can choose from the following course options including 12 credits of Special Topics classes. Students will likely be required to take advanced courses abroad to complete the minor.24.0
