Language at a higher standard.
The Chinese Flagship Program at URI is one of only 12 such programs in the United States designed for students in any major to achieve a professional level of proficiency in Chinese, which is one of the most in-demand languages in business, government, and education.
If you’re a really motivated student, and you’ve got your sights set on a career related to China and the Chinese-speaking community, the URI Chinese Language Flagship Program can help you reach your goals. In this five-year program, you’ll earn a bachelor’s degree in your chosen academic discipline while working to achieve superior language proficiency and a B.A. in Mandarin Chinese.
You’ll also join a prestigious group of students at a small number of universities across the country who are committed to the highest standard of language learning. You will have multiple opportunities to study the language intensively both domestically and abroad in preparation for your Capstone Year, a year of study and internship in China. You can enter this program with no prior Chinese experience, but those who do have prior experience are at an advantage.
