The department offers a Chinese concentration and minor, as well as a Japanese minor.
The concentrations emphasize work in the original language as a key to understanding China/Japan and related issues aiming at and preparing students for further studies in graduate schools and professional careers in international trade, government service, diplomacy, private business, journalism, and other related fields.
(Note: For Japanese and Chinese major concentrations in Asian Studies, see the Asian Studies Program.)
The Chinese Program sends students to its own study abroad program, Associated Colleges in China. The Japanese Program has a list of recommended programs, and students will select a program in consultation with faculty. Learn more about off-campus study.
While all Hamilton students have full access to a modern language laboratory, an audiovisual center and a recording studio, the department provides complete multimedia, interactive, digital versions of the language courses for all levels in the language laboratory.
Professors, instructors and teaching fellows in the department are native speakers of the Chinese and Japanese languages.
