Study with SMU-in-China’s summer program is strongly recommended.
Students testing into a course above CHIN 2402 will receive credit for eight hours towards the Chinese minor (CHIN 2401 and CHIN 2402) upon receiving a C- or better in their first advanced-level Chinese course. They will have to earn nine additional hours in SMU credit to complete the 17 hours for the minor: six hours from the 3000- or 4000-level language training options and three hours from the elective courses. Please note that a student who takes both CHIN 4381 and CHIN 4382 to fulfill their language training must choose a different elective course to complete the nine hours.
Requirements for the Minor
A minimum of 17 credit hours, with at least nine credit hours at the 3000 level and above.
