The Liuhe (Six Harmonies) Pagoda, Hangzhou city, is in Zhejiang Province, China.
Nearly 875 million people speak some form of Chinese—that’s about one fifth of the world’s population. China’s civilization is over 5,000 years old, and the traditions, art, and values are quite different than those of Western societies.
If you are an Asian studies major or minor, you
will need to demonstrate proficiency in an Asian language. Why not choose Chinese? If you have an interest in international
business, learn the language of one of America’s largest trading partners. Take full advantage of beginning, intermediate,
and advanced Chinese courses offered at IUP.
In addition to offering Chinese language classes, you can earn a certificate in Chinese, which gives you an internationally recognized credential in a foreign language.
Certificate seekers are required to take an oral proficiency exam at
the end of their studies. Though no minimal result is required, it does
provide you with an internationally recognized rating.
The certificate is focused explicitly on speaking and writing.
