Chinese Program

Learning Goals for the Chinese Program

The mission of the Chinese program is to provide students opportunities to acquire language proficiency, cultural awareness and critical thinking skills so that they can be global citizens and succeed in various professions in the US and abroad. To achieve this goal, the Chinese program will educate students and enable them to:

  • Communicate effectively in Chinese, oral and written
  • Understand the rich and different cultures of China so that they are more culturally aware and ready to be global citizens
  • Critically analyze different types of Chinese literary texts (in English) within their own cultural, social and political contexts
