Nearly 1.3 billion people (around 16% of the world’s population) speak some form of Chinese as their first language with Mandarin Chinese as one of the six official languages of the United Nations. The minor in Chinese integrates the four language skills of listening, speaking, reading and writing, and is available to students who complete four years of Chinese language study. Many of our students participate in education abroad programs to further their language study. And students can practice their Chinese regularly and participate in a variety of events through the Chinese Club.
