My introduction to the Chinese Studies program was an extraordinary bit of serendipity. The Chinese department is one of the best communities at W&M and gave me the opportunity of a life-time to study abroad for a semester in Beijing. Apart from the language, the emphasis on the culture and history influenced me to declare a major in Chinese.
I appreciate all the help and support I have received from my Chinese professors. With their guidance, I was able to conduct my independent research in both Chinese and English. I look forward to using my Chinese language skills in the ‘real world’ soon!
