The Department of Modern Languages and Literatures at Cal State L.A. launched the new Bachelor of Arts degree in Chinese last fall. The B.A. in Chinese provides students who are interested in language, linguistics, literature, and culture with the skills necessary to teach in secondary schools, to work in intercultural businesses, or to pursue graduate studies in higher education. The degree curriculum covers a wide range of subjects, including Chinese language, film, prose, fiction, nonfiction, drama, poetry, intellectual thought, and civilization. Courses are designed to address the needs of nonnative and heritage speakers of Chinese.
For more information on the Chinese B.A. Program, call Professor Qingyun Wu, director, Chinese Studies Center, Cal State L.A., at (323) 343-4242.
