The Program in Chinese Studies introduces students to both Chinese language and Chinese literature. Its objective is to teach students the basic skills of reading, listening, speaking, and writing Chinese. Besides providing practical training in Chinese for career purposes, the program is also designed to familiarize students with non-Western conceptual schemes and modes of thought. The courses in Chinese language and literature, together with related courses from the departments of Anthropology, History, Philosophy, and Religious Studies, will give students a strong background in China and East Asia in general.
