At this Monday's business meeting, the faculty of William Jewell College approved two IES programs in Shanghai, 21st Century China and Business in China, submitted by the Languages Department in support of the Chinese program. This year marks the first offering of beginning Chinese at Jewell, and with the faculty approval of the intermediate level, these courses will be offered next year. Under consideration in the next few weeks will be the Chinese Area Studies minor in which a student takes the first two years of Chinese language courses at Jewell (through the entire intermediate level) and then completes a semester abroad in either Shanghai or Beijing. We anticipate an enthusiastic response to this important addition to the Department's offerings.
