The Minor in Chinese Language and Culture is for advanced language learners who would like to improve their written and oral communication skills in both academic and professional settings. Students in this program will also advance their linguistic knowledge and cultural literacy from cross-cultural perspectives.
Enrolment in this program is limited and based on completion of 4.0 credits, including:
- CHI211H5 and CHI212H5 (with an average grade of 63% across both courses); and
- a minimum CGPA of 2.3.
NOTE: The Chinese Language Minor is intended for students who have near-native proficiency level in Chinese so that they can be fully engaged in course materials and lectures conducted in Chinese. Students’ proficiency level will be evaluated based on the language placement questionnaire first. If the results of the questionnaire meet the language proficiency requirement, students will be permitted to enrol in courses. If the results are not satisfying or borderline, a one-on-one interview with Professor Chiu-Hung Chen will be arranged in order to determine students’ qualification for enroling in courses.
