Undergraduate Programs in Chinese Studies
The undergraduate major and minor programs in Chinese Studies promote not just language proficiency but also an understanding of Chinese culture. Students who arrive at Carnegie Mellon with previous language study and/or who have high Advanced Placement, an International Baccalaureate, or internal placement exam scores will be able to begin taking courses toward the major or minor earlier in their undergraduate program and will also be able, should they so desire, to complete an additional major. In all cases, progress toward the major will be accelerated by study abroad, which is recommended for all majors.
