Study Abroad Opportunities

Students who are interested in study abroad opportunities are strongly recommended to complete CHIN-203 before leaving for China. It is also important to note that Chinese language courses are offered in the Fall-Winter-Spring sequence for both CHIN-101-102-103 and CHIN-201-202-203. In other words, CHIN-101 and CHIN-201 are only offered in the Fall Quarter.
