A. Required Courses (4 credits)
CHIN 2050 is a required transition course that is intended for students who have not had extensive experience living in a Chinese community. CHIN 2050 is required after CHIN 2010 and before CHIN 3010 and does not count towards the Chinese minor. For students with at least one year of extensive experience speaking Mandarin Chinese in a Mandarin-speaking environment (e.g., returned missionaries), CHIN 2050 is waived and the student should take CHIN 3010 after they have tested in the LPCS Department. (Cantonese speakers should take CHIN 2050.)
