Program Information

Chinese Studies Minor

The Chinese Studies minor is an interdisciplinary program combining language and culture courses on China. Students minoring in Chinese Studies are required to take courses in Chinese language at all levels, and are required to take courses in other departments and programs that focus on China in such areas as economics, politics, religion, history, art history, communication, anthropology, and folklore. Study abroad in China is encouraged. Credits from study in China will be transferred with faculty approval.

For those who are interested in majoring in Chinese, please visit our Individualized Majors program. An interdisciplinary Chinese major template, combining language and culture courses on China, is available. For more details, please contact the faculty in the Chinese program.


Willamette’s Chinese courses also contribute to the interdisciplinary major in Global Cultural Studies.
