Chinese Program

Welcome to the Chinese Program at Montclair State University.

Great Wall of China

The Modern Languages and Literatures department offers a Chinese language Minor which can complement any of the majors at MSU. This program provides courses that enable students to achieve proficiency in reading, writing, and speaking Chinese and to acquire a fundamental understanding of Chinese culture. Through these course offerings, students will be equipped with the necessary language skills to further their studies, achieve academic and/or career goals, and to pursue their dreams. 

A number of Chinese courses count towards the Asian Studies Minor.

The Chinese program also organizes a variety of fun and exciting extracurricular activities: Class trips to Chinese restaurants and to  Chinatown in NYC, Chinese calligraphy and painting workshops, Tai-chi workshops, film screenings, karaoke singing and more.
