Students of Chinese are particularly urged to take courses on literature, culture, and film as a means of gaining perspective on both traditional and modern Chinese culture, spanning over two millennia from early times into the contemporary. Students of Chinese can take advantage of a rich environment for language study, including intensive introductory language courses, language tables and chat hours with native speakers, multimedia resources, and opportunities for study abroad.
