The Program offers the opportunity to earn a B.A. in Chinese Studies and also the opportunity to earn a minor. Due to our interdisciplinary nature the Chinese Studies Program relies on departments such as Literature, History, Visual Arts and more to offer a wide variety of Chinese Studies non-language electives. This also permits the Program to support some students in meeting their college general education requirements and study abroad to China, Hong Kong, Taiwan, Singapore and other institutions that are associated with Chinese Studies. The Chinese Studies Program is very happy to guide any student in meeting their academic goals and encourages walk-ins to learn more about UCSD resources.
