Enhance the scope of your bachelor's degree with a minor in Chinese Studies.
The Chinese Studies Program at University of Louisville provides a broad, interdisciplinary approach to the study of the Chinese people, language, history and culture. This program brings together China-specialist faculty from Classical and Modern Languages, History, Political Science, Humanities, Geography, and our China-partner Beijing Foreign Studies University, and promotes understanding of the Chinese civilization and appreciation of the global cultural diversity. Through broad academic coursework, extra-curricular activities, a summer study-in-China program, and the KIIS summer program, this program compliments majors such as Political Science, Humanities, Geography, Language, or History. Working with US College Board and institutes/organizations at home and in China, this program opens scholarship or job opportunities.
Chinese is the most spoken language in the world -- spoken in China, Taiwan, Singapore, Sydney, Toronto, and Flushing, New York.
