The Chinese minor requires students to complete a four-course sequence which begins at or above Intermediate 1 and ends at or beyond Advanced 2. However, it is possible to complete the minor with three courses by placing out of one of the middle two courses in the four-course sequence and by placing out of Intermediate I if you began taking Chinese at NYU at the Elementary level.
Example 1: If you take Elementary 1 or 2 at NYU and place out of Intermediate 1, you may earn the minor with Intermediate 2, Advanced 1, and Advanced 2.
Example 2: If you take Intermediate 1 but place out of Intermediate 2, you may earn the minor with Intermediate 1, Advanced 1 and Advanced 2.
Example 3: If you take Intermediate 1 & 2 but place out of Advanced 1, you may earn the minor with Intermediate 1 & 2 and Advanced 2.
Example 4: If you take Advanced 1 but place out of Advanced 2, you may earn the minor with Advanced 1 and two post Advanced 2 courses.
–A student who begins the sequence at or beyond Advanced 2 must complete four courses at NYU at or above that level to earn the minor.
–All courses used to fulfill the minor must be taken at NYU and passed with at least a C grade or higher.
–At least 3 courses in any minor must not be used for any other major or minor requirement.
