Effective Fall 2015

Students must satisfactorily complete the total credits required for the minor. Minors and interdisciplinary minors require 12 or more upper-division (300- to 400-level) credits.

Additional coursework may be required due to prerequisites.

All majors and minors in the department must earn a minimum grade of C (a grade of C- is not acceptable) in each upper-division course that carries the LCHI subject code.  Courses taught in English may not be used to meet the requirements for the minor.

Students must complete lower-division language courses or place out of lower-division courses through placement testing. Students who place into LCHI 201 or LCHI 304 will have to replace some or all of the lower-division credits with upper-division Chinese classes or other language-appropriate department-approved (non-LCHI) courses. See the department for a list of these courses.


Other courses, such as LCHI 495, may be petitioned to substitute for one of the courses below.


LCHI 408 may only count once toward the minor.

Any transferred language courses, other than gtPathways courses, will be evaluated by the Department of Languages, Literatures and Culture for equivalency to CSU language courses or as substitutions for CSU language courses.
