Chinese Language Program

The Bi-College Chinese Program offers five years of instruction in Mandarin Chinese.

First-year Chinese (CNSE001-002) and Second-year Chinese (CNSE003-004) both have master and drill sections. First-year Chinese (CNSE001-002) is a year-long course. Both semesters must be completed in order to receive credit. Advanced Chinese, offered each semester with a different topic, can be taken as Fourth- or Fifth-year Chinese, with one credit per semester, and repeated as long as the topics differ. For students with a background in Chinese, we offer CNSE007-008 after administering a placement test. Upon completion of this full year sequence, students move on to Second-year Chinese. The approved Study Abroad program for Chinese is CET.
