The Chinese minor at NYU Abu Dhabi offers comprehensive training in listening, speaking, reading, and writing modern Chinese, and provide a strong foundation for students who wish to pursue graduate study in relevant fields or use the language in their future career.
The Chinese minor organizes many events including course-related field trips within UAE, Chinese language roundtables, and invited lectures given by scholars from China. Students have also participated in a regional seminar trip to Chengdu, China, and gained first-hand experience with the culture and history in the region.
The Department of East Asian Studies at New York University offers courses on China, Japan, and Korea. The focus of the undergraduate program is primarily on language, history, and literature, and the way in which these three civilizations have interacted with the Western world to reconstitute received cultures into modern societies. By the intensive study of Asian culture, the student is encouraged to reflect on the global interrelatedness of human society.
