UC Davis Chinese curriculum consists of four major modules of courses: Modern Chinese (Mandarin), Classical Chinese, Chinese linguistics, and Chinese literature and culture. Additionally, advanced level students also have opportunities to take Chinese Tutoring (CHN 197T) to practice Chinese and develop communicative and interpersonal skills as a Chinese tutor.
The foundation-level Japanese language program at UC Davis offers three years of study (JPN 1 through JPN 113). Successful completion of this sequence, or equivalent proficiency, qualifies students for any of the non-sequential fourth-year Japanese language courses offered (JPN 131 through JPN 138). Each foundation-level course is offered once a year.
