More than 1.2 billion people speak Chinese, and students with foreign language knowledge are some of the highest-paid liberal arts graduates. Plus, study abroad opportunities abound. So what are you waiting for? Study Chinese to give yourself an edge in any field. Note that all incoming students enrolling in a foreign language class with prior experience in that language will be required to take a placement exam to determine the level they should begin and credit earned for those with prior language experience
