A minor in Chinese leads students who have already reached an intermediate level of proficiency (above Chinese II) into a more advanced study of the language and culture. The program:
- Consists of 6 subjects arranged in 3 levels of study (Tier I, Tier II, and Tier III) starting at Chinese III or higher*
- 5 of these subjects overlap with the 8-subject HASS GIR. The remaining 6th subject counts for 12 units beyond GIR
A student can concentrate and minor in the same field.
*Please note that Chinese I & II do not count towards the Minor. They do count towards the Concentration.

There are several concentration options, depending on whether the focus is language or literature and culture.
If a student’s incoming level is Chinese I:
- 4 subjects, Chinese I through Chinese IV are required to complete the concentration
If a student’s incoming level is Chinese II or above:
- 3 subjects at Chinese II or above are required to complete the concentration
An upper-level concentration may include three subjects, such as Chinese III or Chinese IV and/or intermediate to advanced classes taught in Chinese. Certain subjects offered in English that pertain to Chinese studies may be applied towards fulfilling certain concentration requirements; please see the concentration advisor for approval.
