The Chinese major provides the training and cultural background needed for entering East Asia-related careers in such fields as higher education, the arts, business, government, international relations, agriculture, or the media. Students may also consider a double major in Chinese and another discipline, such as business, international relations, economics, or journalism.

Our two Chinese minors provide more skeletal training in Chinese language or culture.


Our 2017 Summer Intensive First-Year and Second-Year courses run for ten weeks, May 30 to August 20.  In-class learning is strengthened by one-on-one and small group language practice sessions and cultural activities.

$500 scholarships are available for the first five registered UMD students at each level.
