Minor requirements

Our 18-credit minor creates a comprehensive learning experience with courses in Chinese culture, literature, composition, and phonetics and conversation.

Note: CHI II counts towards the minor, which means that once you are done with CHI II, you are only 15 credits (5 courses) away from completing the minor.
