The curriculum of the MA in Chinese consists of twelve courses (48 quarter credit hours), divided into two parts:
The core curriculum consists of the following four courses:
In addition, all three-hundred level courses in the respective languages are offered simultaneously as 400-level electives to complete the MA program. These 400-level courses carry different requirements than the lower-level courses.
Additional requirements include:
All students must attain a rating of at least “Advanced Low” from the standardized Oral Proficiency Interview (OPI) of the American Council on Teaching Foreign Languages (ACTFL).
The service learning experience will involve work within an environment where the student can apply her or his linguistic expertise, as a volunteer, contributor, intern, or employee. This environment might be a community group; a social service or agency; a professional association; or an artistic organization. This experience should ideally contribute to the student’s portfolio project.
The portfolio (completed while enrolled in MOL 496) consists of a compilation and critical assessment of select work done throughout the program or a final project with written critical assessment. Final projects may include a community service experience, internship, performance and creative work, thesis, or translation.
A thesis option will be available for students who attain a GPA of at least 3.7 in the program after completing 24 credit hours of coursework. The thesis should address the area of interest of the candidate’s course “cluster.”
