CONFUCIUS INSTITUTE

Courses Offered


The Confucius Institute usually provides two language teachers from our Chinese partner universities to support the USF Chinese program at the Department of World Languages (DWL). They strictly follow the curriculum designed by the USF-DWL faculty. To learn more about the credit-bearing Chinese courses and program at DWL, visit http://languages.usf.edu/undergraduate/chinese.

In addition, we are working with other USF academic programs to co-sponsor courses such as Traditional Chinese Medicine and Chinese music. All teachers we provide have graduate degrees in the subject areas they teach and follow the USF curriculum. For more information, please contact us at Chinese@usf.edu.
