The China Studies Focus Award recognizes students who have gained considerable knowledge of China, its language and its culture. The award can be especially useful to transfer students who will focus on International Studies, Asian Studies, International Business, or Chinese. The award also demonstrates to employers that the student has a significant background in East Asian culture and an expanded worldview. To receive the China Studies Focus Award, a student must complete a minimum of 15 credits, including CHN 102 or higher or demonstrate equivalent language proficiency.
A focus award is not a state approved award and will not appear on a student's transcript. For more information, contact Ron Bekey.
