For the M.A.T. in Chinese, candidates are expected to complete a total of thirty credits.
The first 27 credits should normally be distributed over the following areas:
- 9 credits in language (e.g., linguistics, grammar, writing, translation, language across the curriculum)
- 12 credits in literature and/or culture
- 6 credits in methodology (taken through the Rutgers World Languages Institute).
- Students may elect to take one course (three credits) in the Graduate School of Education (GSE), upon prior approval by the graduate director.
- Students may, with the approval of the graduate director, participate in a summer graduate study abroad program and earn credits.
- The graduate director may accept up to 9 credits at the graduate level from another institution toward the fulfillment of degree requirements at Rutgers. Transfer credits must have been taken at an accredited college/university, must be based on graduate level course work related to Chinese language, linguistics, literature, or history in classes taught in Chinese, and cannot have been counted toward any degree that you previously completed (no double counting, see Graduate School-New Brunswick Catalog 2008-2010, “Academic Policies and Procedures”).
