The Minor and the Certificate in Modern Chinese Language and Culture programs aim to provide a level of language competency — speaking, understanding, reading and writing — in Mandarin Chinese. In addition, through the inclusion of courses on culture, literature and other related topics offered by Classics, Modern Languages and Linguistics and other departments (History, Religion, and Political Science), the program provides a broad overview of Chinese culture and civilization.
