The Chinese Section of EALL consists of two subsections, i.e. Chinese language &
linguistics and Chinese literary & cultural studies. Offering faculty expertise in linguistics,
language pedagogy, literary and cultural studies, the Chinese Section is one of the largest of
its kind in North-America and outside East Asia. Its uniqueness lies in the multidisciplinary
faculty composition and an interdisciplinary research orientation.
Undergraduate and graduate degrees are offered by the two Chinese subsections. In addition
to the regular B.A. degree in Chinese language and culture, the Chinese Section also offers an
undergraduate Certificate and a Minor in Chinese language. At the graduate level, M.A. and
Ph.D. degrees are offered in Chinese Language & Linguistics, and in Chinese Literary &
Cultural Studies, with a focus on either the classical, pre-modern, or 20th century period.
Additional cultural activities, resources, and exchange opportunities are available through the
Center for Chinese Studies.
A warm welcome to our new Faculty Member, Julie Li Jiang (from Harvard), Assistant Professor of Chinese Linguistics.
