Chinese Studies (BA)

The Chinese Studies program focuses on developing your ability to speak Chinese and understand Chinese culture. Twenty percent of the global population speaks Chinese, making it the most widely used language in the world. Having the ability to speak and understand Chinese will make you a marketable candidate in a variety of professional fields, such as business, consulting or politics.

Participate in one of DePaul’s Study Abroad programs in Beijing, Hong Kong or Shanghai where you’ll study and live in China for an extended period of time and experience the Chinese language and culture first-hand.

We also offer the 3+3 BA/JD program, which allows high-achieving first-year undergraduate students to be admitted simultaneously to the College of Liberal Arts and Social Sciences (LAS) and the College of Law (LAW). You’ll complete your first three years in LAS and your final three years in LAW.
