The Chinese Studies major is intended for students primarily interested in Chinese language and literature.

Occidental's program aims to help students attain advanced language proficiency in Chinese to explore Chinese culture directly through its language, literature, films, and through study abroad. With Chinese programs in Beijing, Kunming, Hong Kong, Nanjing, and Shanghai, study abroad is highly encouraged. Explore study abroad opportunities at the International Programs office or in consultation with your advisor.
