Concordia currently offers a limited number of upper-division courses, so study off campus is necessary to complete the Chinese Language and Cultures major. Students have a number of opportunities to earn the required credits. Most students will study abroad, some will choose to take advantage of the cooperative education opportunities at Concordia Language Villages, and others may transfer in approved courses from other colleges. Please consult with the Chinese program director or the chair of the world languages and cultures department chair to evaluate your options and determine the best course of study for you.
Students seeking licensure to teach Chinese must also fulfill the requirements for a major in education. For additional information about teaching Chinese, see the chair of world languages and cultures or the chair of education.
Degree and Graduation Requirements
