Program Overview

The minor in Chinese language provides students with linguistic skills and cross-cultural competence that will complement their studies, no matter their major. The minor prepares students for future academic or professional opportunities in which proficiency in Chinese is required or preferred.

Students who have studied Chinese at UNH have gone on to use Chinese in a variety of paths. One example is Teach in China, a program offered through the Council of International Education Exchange. New Hampshire has extensive business ties with China, which is ranked third among New Hampshire’s top export partners.
