Changes and challenges for the Chinese programs

  • It’s becoming increasingly difficult to assign transfer credits to UBC students, due to the lack of requirement for Chinese character writing instruction. It’s equally challenging for UBC students to join our Chinese classes where Chinese character writing is still the building blocks for learning the language.
  • The GIS sections for Classical Chinese were cancelled due to low enrolment.
