Completing the Chinese Minor Program

Academic Advice

Application should be made when the student has completed the prerequisite courses or during the semester in which they will be completed.

Students who demonstrate proficiency in Chinese at any of the required levels may have the corresponding language course requirements waived. These waived language courses will not count toward the minor but must be replaced with other Chinese language or Chinese language-related courses to bring the total number of courses to six and the minimum total number of credits to 18. This also applies if CHI 104 is completed as the prerequisite instead of CHI 101-102 sequence.

Students with prior Chinese language proficiency should consult with the program director to arrange an appropriate program.

Transfer Credit Policy

Due to the fact that relatively few students arrive at UB having taken a significant number of linguistics or Chinese courses, the Department of Linguistics does not have specific transfer credit policies. The possibility of transfer credits can be discussed on a case-by-case basis with the program directors.

Prerequisite Courses

CHI 101-CHI 102 First-Year Chinese or CHI 104 Transitional First-Year Chinese (or equivalent proficiency)

Required Courses

CHI 201 Second-Year Chinese and CHI 202 Second-Year Chinese
CHI 301 Third-Year Chinese
One Chinese language or Chinese language related course.
