Carnegie Mellon University

Undergraduate Program in Chinese Studies

Chinese Studies promotes not just language proficiency but also an understanding of Chinese culture. Students who arrive at Carnegie Mellon with previous language experience 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 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.

The Chinese Studies Program offers 35 language-content integrated courses in three connected tracks. To find out what will be offered this semester, please contact Gang Liu.
