York provides a variety of courses in Chinese language, literature, film, culture, and business. Our summer language course in Shanghai and Beijing enriches students' cultural experience through study abroad. Our literature courses range from classic to contemporary (including Chinese-Canadian and Chinese-American literature).

Studying Chinese can be highly rewarding: its civilization is one of the richest and oldest of the world; its language is spoken by over a billion people; and its economy is now the second largest in the world. Learning Chinese will widen your horizon and also prove an asset in the market place.
