Chinese Literature At Cornell
The program seeks to provide a strong foundation for the study of pre-modern Chinese language and literature as well as contemporary Chinese literature and media.

The program annually provides an introductory course in Classical Chinese wenyan wen at the 2200 level that can be followed by 3300 level reading courses for additional proficiency and familiarity with traditional literature.

Courses in Chinese thought, religion, literature, film, cultural theory, and historical linguistics are also regularly offered at the 4400 and 6600 levels. Visiting faculty have also regularly offered advanced reading courses in other disciplines, including anthropology, art history, history, and journalism.

Directed study is available by permission of an instructor to students engaged in research on a specific topic derived from their previous study in regularly offered literature courses in Asian Studies (ASIAN) and Chinese Literature.
