Chinese Major

“Please be aware that courses listed as core requirements for the Chinese major, minor, or Chinese teaching minor can only be counted once towards your degree. You cannot count them a second time as an elective or as meeting a second major requirement. You can however take another literature, linguistics, or culture class that has not been counted towards your degree and count it once towards your elective requirements. Students who are in the Chinese Flagship program can count ONE of their 3 credit-hour courses towards the elective requirements for the major or minor. Flagship courses cannot be used to replace the core language, literature, or culture courses required of the major or minor.”

Program Requirements

It is strongly recommended that StDev 317 be taken at the end of the sophomore year or the beginning of the junior year. Because liberal arts degrees provide preparation in a variety of useful fields rather than a single career track, this course is recommended to help liberal arts students focus on specific educational and occupational goals and to identify the career options or educational opportunities available to them. The course will introduce them to the resources needed for accessing information about graduate schools, internships, careers, and career development. Students will learn basic employment strategies, including the steps necessary for obtaining employment related to their own specialty.
