This program includes intensive language instruction in Chinese (Mandarin). The introductory
courses meet, with a rotation of teachers, four hours a day, five days a week, for nine weeks. There are also
at least five hours daily of additional preparation time outside of class, including daily sessions
in the language lab. Section classes are kept small.
Chinese 1160 is an ideal course for those planning to go to China in the fall as well
as for those who just want to get a good start on spoken and written Chinese. Because the
program extends through the entire day, those enrolled in it cannot take other courses or hold part-time
jobs, except possibly on weekends.
Tuition and fees for each eight-credit course are $9,680. The first-round application deadline is March 1.
After March 1 acceptance into the program is on a rolling basis as long as there is room in the course. Once accepted,
a $500 nonrefundable deposit, which is applied toward tuition, is required within two weeks of acceptance to ensure a place
in the summer program. The remainder of the tuition is due by April 8.
