Chinese Minor


Return to Degrees Offered (Majors, Minors) Return to: Degrees Offered (Majors, Minors)

The Chinese minor offers small and focused courses of language instruction by a native mandarin speaker, and proposes elective courses in Chinese history, culture, or languages.  Students are encouraged to study abroad to achieve medium proficiency, but may complete the minor on campus. Please contact the department for which courses are available as electives in any given year. In today’s global and transnational world, Chinese is one of the most popular and necessary languages, and students with a Chinese minor may also profit from taking CWU’s Asia Pacific Studies program. With a minor in Chinese, students can find careers in translation and interpretation, education, business, tourism, the military, the Foreign Service, and other areas. The US Government designates Chinese as a “critical” language. ROTC students may be eligible to receive scholarships or other benefits if they select this minor.

Only courses at the 200-level or above may count towards the minor.
