- The Chinese language is offered at the elementary and intermediate levels (Chinese 101, 102, 201, and 202).
- Asian Studies is offered as a major and minor in the International Studies Department. Chinese is one of the three areas of focus that compliment that major/minor. Students interested in the Chinese language are encouraged to consider a major and minor in Asian Studies offered through Gonzaga's International Studies Department.
You can study the Chinese language during your time at Gonzaga in one the following ways
- Stay on the Gonzaga campus and participate via synchronous Zoom and practice of all modes of communication (interpersonal, presentational, interpretive) with a Whitworth Chinese Professor. This course is NOT an online, self-paced course.
- OR travel to Whitworth University's campus in North Spokane and take the course in that classroom.
- Several caveats:
- Fill in this form and email to firstname.lastname@example.org to register for the course.
- A student must be enrolled at Gonzaga as a matriculated full-time undergraduate student.
- Students cannot exceed the maximum number of credits allowed under the flat tuition rate of their home institution (18 credits) when all credits are combined.
- The courses will be recorded on transcripts at both institutions.
- There will be no additional tuition cost to cross-registered students.
- Contact Dr. Christina Isabelli, Modern Languages & Literature Department Chair by email if you have questions.
