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, Journalism, Women’s, Gender, and Sexuality Studies, and Chinese language.
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 new minor in Chinese Studies will be proposed in Fall 2013 and is projected to be a part of the curriculum in 2013-14.
Earlham students who pursue study abroad in China participate in CIEE programs.
