1999 Chinese Capstone
As a summative project for all Chinese Majors, the course provides students with a set of guidelines on how to complete the Senior Project through integrating culture and language (speaking and writing), traditional and modern Chinese culture as well as learning experiences acquired both at Pitt and abroad in China and/or Taiwan. In short, they are to prepare proposals, formulate essay themes in both the English Senior Essay and the Chinese essay, determine other possible formats that can be accepted as supplements (audio-visual, electronic, etc.), as well as a timetable of when to do what. This project instructs students on how to find appropriate resources, seek advice from the faculty, and complete their projects in accordance with required standards.
