A minor in Chinese goes beyond language study, it opens you up to the world.

Spoken by more people on the planet than any other tongue, familiarity with Chinese breaks through the barrier that walls us off from a world of international commerce, politics, literature, art, and—at the risk of sounding a little cliché—a history that runs deeper than Western memory.

Growing demand in business, politics, and the arts for people who are familiar with Chinese makes proficiency in the language a professional skill of incredible value. But beyond the basics of communication, a minor in Chinese is a way to rewire your brain so that it is forever capable of more complex thoughts.
