Chinese National Conditions & Culture (CNCC) Curriculum

 

Students are required to take a total of 8 credits in CNCC, with two courses taken in the fall & winter semester of their first year and spring & summer semester of their second year. Each course takes 1500 minutes or more.

  • Mandatory for Mainland students.
  • Hong Kong, Macao, Taiwan, and Oversea Chinese Students: Arguing and Thinking, Social Concerns (Exemption); Approaching History, The Inheritance and Internationalization of Chinese Culture (Either is Mandatory);
  • International Students: Modern Chinese, Survey of China

Strong Recommendation

To ensure every senior student will get a Diploma and Degree certificate in time (the end of June or the beginning of July), strongly recommend students should finish all the CNCC courses before their Senior Winter Semester.

The best plan is two courses (Approaching History, The Inheritance and Internationalization of Chinese Culture) taken in Fall or Winter Semester of their First Year and Spring or Summer Semester of their Second Year (Arguing and Thinking, Social Concerns).

Attention: Students should do a good job in the management of their courses to avoid grades effects or other negative consequences. The following cases will be handled according to the corresponding rules. Please read them carefully and follow them strictly. Thanks for your cooperation.

  • The students whose number of unexcused absences or requests for leave exceeds 1/3 of the total number of classes (including1/3) unable to attend final exams or assessments and the final scores will be recorded as F; If students asked for leave but handed in the homework later, the corresponding homework score could be kept according to the course assessment requirements but the corresponding attendance score would be 0; Absence without reason will be treated as absenteeism and the score for homework & attendance is 0.
  • E-mail is a formal and effective way for WKU to communicate with students. As an extremely important tool for students to receive notifications and information from WKU, students have to check their E-mails in time (including KU E-mail and WKU E-mail). If there are some problems with email or worry about have not received the email, students must ask some relevant departments for help or consultation in various ways. Otherwise, students have to bear the relevant consequences by themselves without any accountability.
