St. John's University New York Campuses Closed

Out of concern for the safety of our students, faculty, and administration and in consideration of the widespread regional snow removal efforts which are expected, all St. John's University's New York campuses will be closed Monday, January 26, and Tuesday, January 27, 2015, and all classes will be canceled.

This closing applies to St. John's Queens, Staten Island, Manhattan, and Oakdale campuses.

Chinese Studies, Master of Arts

St. John's College of Liberal Arts and Sciences

Overview

The Master of Arts program in Chinese studies provides students with a solid foundation in the language, history, and culture of China. This specialized study and familiarity with research are intended to equip the student for a teaching career or for further scholarship.

Students in the program may opt for a thesis or non-thesis option. The thesis option is strongly recommended for students who wish to continue their graduate studies beyond the master’s level.
