Brief Summary of ProposalThe proposed Chinese minor is modeled on other language programs that subscribe to the concept of developing proficiency in the four language skills in addition to studying literature and culture of the Chinese World. It is worth emphasizing that the proposed Chinese minor will be different from the Certificate Program in Asian and Middle Eastern Studies. While the Chinese minor is, on the whole, a language program (language, literature and culture), East Asian Studies is an interdisciplinary program. The Chinese minor will complement, but not duplicate, the curriculum of the East Asian Studies program. It will add electives to the curriculum, although only 16 credits of Chinese language will be allowed to count toward both programs, CHINESE 101,102,201 and 202. The level of proficiency developed in the Chinese minor is superior to that required by the Certificate in East Asian Studies programs. SEE PROPOSAL NUMBER AS-09-055 FOR COURSE PROPOSALS.
