Continuation of CHIN 331. Credit will be granted for only one of CHIN 333 or CHIN 203 or CHIN 334.

  • 2nd choice: CHIN333 in Summer Term 1, 2021
    • Please note that summer CHIN333 is the second part of CHIN334 (=CHIN331+CHIN333).
    • CHIN334 is a six-week six-credit intensive course. If you intend to take CHIN333 in the summer, you will be joining the rest of the CHIN334 students for the second three-week period of their course, i.e. May 31 – June 17. Your CHIN333 instructor may request you to join the class a couple of days ahead of the class to adapt to summer intensive learning. The class will meet four times a week, four hours a day, with the exact same instructional hours as a regular winter course. The course is intensive because you are earning the same amount of credits within a very short period of time, i.e. six credits for CHIN334 in six weeks and three credits for CHIN333 in three weeks.
    • Please note that if you have finished CHIN331 this term, you canNOT register for CHIN334. Please register in CHIN333 in summer term 1 2021. Course is scheduled and confirmed to be offered.
