The foreign language program at The University of Texas at Tyler now offers a Chinese language course, Dr. Hui Wu, Department of Literature and Languages chair, announced.
The department recently welcomed two visiting Chinese professors, who are jointly sponsored by UT Tyler and the China Ministry of Education on a two-year contract.
“Top administrators at UT Tyler are the major support force behind this project. Both Dr. Gregg Lassen and Dr. Peter Fos offered tremendous help in terms of the professors’ terms of service, their daily needs and the necessary paperwork for their arrival at UT Tyler,” Wu said.
New Chinese professors will rotate and come every two years to continue offering Chinese language courses at UT Tyler.
The course is part of the university’s Asian studies minor, which began this fall.
