The Chinese minor requires:
1. Language courses
a. Students who do not have any background or have had very little experience in Chinese take CHN 101, 102, 201, and 202.
b. Students whose Chinese oral proficiency is close to that of Chinese native speakers, but who have little or no reading and writing skills in Chinese, take CHN 103 and 203.
Choice of a. or b. is determined by placement test. Students can waive the requirement by demonstrating competency beyond 202 or 203 through placement test.
In addition to satisfying the requirements in (1), students minoring in Chinese must take 4 courses in Chinese language, literature and cultural studies with no less than 12 credits. Up to four credits may be fulfilled through courses offered outside REALC, but 50% or more of the course content must be on China. No more than one lecture course from non-Emory administered study-abroad programs or CHN 496 (Language Internship) may be counted towards the minor. No more than two of the four can be language courses. New courses are added regularly. Please contact the department for current list.
No course for the minor may be taken S/U. Students must receive at least a C in each course taken for the minor.
