China is the second largest economy in the world and one of the trading partners of the United States. As the official language of China, Mandarin is spoken by over 917 million people in China and in Chinese communities overseas. The U.S Department of State has listed Mandarin as one of the languages critical to U.S. national security and economic prosperity.

Students wishing to deepen their skills in Mandarin can major in Liberal Arts, take as many courses as possible in this language, and transfer to Hunter College, where they can pursue a BA in Chinese. Our courses are fully articulated with the program in Chinese at Hunter College. Other opportunities for exposure to Chinese cultures include the Chinese club, the study abroad summer program in China, and external scholarship programs, including the Critical Languages Scholarship Program offered by the U.S. Department of State.
