This minor offers students substantial language training and fundamental cultural understanding. Three years course work or the equivalent training in language gives students adequate skills for daily communication and some tools for handling more sophisticated materials. Literature and culture courses provide students with knowledge of traditional and modern Chinese world views and social realities.

Chinese language and culture and literature credits transferred to Miami from other institutions may be used to fulfill the requirements. The courses must be passed with a 2.00 GPA. Courses taken on a credit/no-credit basis may not be applied to the minor.
