China Studies

Minor in China Studies

Director:  Dongmei Zeng


Our program is dedicated to the study of China, both as a vital part of the world today and as one of the great civilizations in human history. To this end, we offer courses ranging from language to literature, history, religion, comparative studies, anthropology, philosophy, sociology, and other areas. We seek to foster in our students an appreciation of the rich heritages of China’s past as well as of the complexities of China’s present.
