Chinese Language and Asian Studies Track (CLAS)

Chinese Language and Asian Studies Track

Students who take the CLAS Track will reach higher levels of language proficiency and regional expertise.  They take the same subject area courses and the same number of credits as those in the other tracks.  The overall difference is that CLAS Track students take 45 credits in courses that will be taught entirely in Chinese or have a significant Chinese component with supplementary reading and writing assignments in English.  Study abroad in the summer after the sophomore year is required.  This Track is not open to native speakers of Chinese.
