The Department of Modern Languages and Classics offers a popular minor in Chinese. The department has two instructors of Chinese and a graduate teaching assistant. All are native speakers. The department offers regular instruction on the undergraduate level and a summer study abroad program in China. Students desiring more advanced proficiency should consider participating in the UA in China summer program and/or studying for a semester or year at a Chinese university. Our Chinese minors have been regularly selected for prestigious Boren and Fulbright scholarships in the past several years. For advising on the Chinese program, please contact Dr. Koji Arizumi (karizumi@ua.edu).
