Mandarin Chinese Minor
Students minoring in Mandarin Chinese will take a minimum of six courses numbered MAND 1501 and higher, to be selected in consultation with the assigned departmental Mandarin Chinese minor adviser. These courses normally include:
|MAND 1501||Intermediate Mandarin I||3|
|MAND 1502||Intermediate Mandarin II||3|
|MAND 2001||Mandarin Language and Literature||3|
|MAND 2500||Approaches to Literature||4|
|Two MAND electives 1, 2||8|
Any course with the MAND subject code or MAND attribute code may apply. A list of these courses can be found here.
At least one 3000 level course is required. A 2000-level MAND course is a prerequisite for all 3000-level MAND courses.
All courses counting towards the core language requirement and the major or the minor in a modern foreign language, literature and culture must be taken for credit and a letter grade. When AP or IB credits are awarded as equivalent to the 1502 level in a language, these credits will be applied toward the core language requirement and, as elective credits, toward graduation, but they will not be applied toward the major or the minor in that language.
Students interested in the Mandarin Chinese minor are highly recommended to study in China or another Chinese-speaking country. Students are encouraged to study abroad during the summer, for a semester, or a year to either fulfill some of the required core courses or take upper-level electives. A maximum of two courses for the Mandarin Chinese minor may be taken abroad. Students who opt to apply study abroad credits toward their minor must have these courses approved by the Mandarin Chinese minor adviser prior to their going abroad.
The minor in Mandarin Chinese is available at Fordham College at Rose Hill and Fordham College at Lincoln Center. Students in Fordham School of Professional and Continuing Studies may minor in Mandarin Chinese only if their schedules are sufficiently flexible to permit them to take day courses at the Rose Hill or Lincoln Center campuses.
