Allegheny College offers a minor in Chinese language along with instruction in Chinese (in the original language and in translation) through the department of Modern and Classical Languages. For Allegheny’s Learning Outcomes for the study of modern languages, including Chinese, please see the “Modern and Classical Languages ” section in this Bulletin.
See also the minor in “Chinese Studies .”
Students are encouraged to study in mainland China or Taiwan after completion of CHIN 120 . The College sponsors several distinct study-abroad programs that are open to all qualified Allegheny students and to which Allegheny financial aid may be applied; see the “Study Away ” section of this Bulletin for details. In particular, sponsored programs through CIEE in Beijing, Nanjing, and Shanghai (all in China) offer instruction in Chinese. Coursework taken abroad may be applicable to the Chinese minor, and students may receive credit for one level of language per semester spent abroad. Please consult with Professor Shi regarding placement and transfer credits.
International Economics and Business
Those students wishing to pursue a career in language with a focus on international economics or business should combine their study of a particular country and language with a background in economics. If students are majoring in Economics and minoring in Chinese Language, they should take CHIN 305 and one other course at the 300-level as part of their requirements. In addition, students are encouraged to study abroad and to complete an internship either abroad or with a company engaged in international trade. For economics courses that complement a Chinese minor, see the course of study described under International Economics and Business in the “Economics ” section of this Bulletin.
