Chinese Studies

Overview   |   Our Faculty   |   The Minor   |   Courses  

In addition to Chinese language study, students can engage in a variety of courses that focus on China. They can plan semester and yearlong study abroad programs as well as May Term opportunities in China led by Earlham faculty. Students are able to immerse themselves in the increasing co-curricular opportunities that bring China to our campus.

Many courses in the Earlham curriculum include significant China content. These courses can be found across the curriculum, including courses cross-listed in Religion, Politics, History, Music, Literature, International Studies, Chinese Language, and Women’s, Gender, and Sexuality Studies

Students interested in concentrated study of China may work with their academic adviser to develop an independent, self-designed major or minor in Chinese Studies. A minor in Chinese Studies is now part of the curriculum.

Earlham students who pursue study abroad in China participate in CIEE programs.

Earlham College, an independent, residential college, aspires to provide the highest-quality undergraduate education in the liberal arts, including the sciences, shaped by the distinctive perspectives of the Religious Society of Friends (Quakers).
