Is Chinese Flagship an Option for Me?

Ole Miss students DO NOT need to be in Chinese Flagship to major or minor in Chinese.
For certain students, Flagship may be impractical or impossible to complete.
Examples include:

  • Students who begin Chinese after freshman year, including transfer students
  • Students who have large, inflexible commitments to other academic or professional programs, such as pharmacy, nursing, exercise science, etc.

This is not to say that Flagship will prevent students from pursuing multiple majors and/or specialized programs; in fact, Flagship students are expected to have additional academic pursuits to complement their language skills and make them marketable in their career fields.
