The ASU Chinese Language Flagship Center offers a dynamic undergraduate program for highly motivated students interested in achieving a professional level of Chinese proficiency while simultaneously pursuing any major of their choice. Our programs attract students who are among the best learners of Chinese in the nation.
ASU Chinese Flagship Program incorporates Chinese language courses alongside specialized Chinese content courses from various academic disciplines, covering a wide variety of topics including history, politics, literature, religion, economics, and culture. Students also have access to scholarships for intensive overseas and domestic summer language programs. In the final year of the Flagship program, the Capstone year, students enroll a Chinese Flagship Capstone Program at a University in China, Taiwan or in the Defense Language Institute in Monterey California for language and direct enrollment courses. They also complete a professional internship during the Capstone year abroad that relates to their interests and field of study.
Domestic resources include weekly one on one tutorials with a Native Chinese Speaker, Language Labs, Book Club, and a wide variety of cultural events organized by ASU’s Chinese Flagship Team.
Students interested in applying are encouraged to speak with the Chinese Flagship Coordinator to learn more about how the program works in conjunction with other area studies.
