UNG Chinese Flagship Overview Transcript

Did you know that Mandarin is considered a critical language, and that those who speak it are more valuable to the US military and international companies?

The ROTC Chinese Language Flagship is designed to assist students in achieving professional level language proficiency.

Students receive rigorous language instruction at the University of North Georgia and overseas to maximize their language learning experience

It is an immersive program. It is focused on learning outcomes. It is pegged towards student progress.

We start with students who have no Chinese background and in five years we can move them into a high level of professional proficiency

So when they graduate, whether they commission in the United States Army, or whether they move on to a career in a governmental agency or somewhere else they will have the ability to interact, communicate, at a professional level in Chinese.

The ROTC Chinese Language Flagship is designed for highly motivated undergraduate students who will take their place among the next generation of global professionals

They need to be physically fit. They need be a good student for Flagship.

Though, they also need to have at least some aptitude for learning languages, and they need a passion for learning language and the culture, because that's what's going to get them across that finish line.

(Speaking Chinese) Students will take intensive language and culture courses alongside an academic major of their choice.

Students will receive personalized attention throughout their time at UNG and will participate in at least one summer study abroad program after completing the UNG component and achieving an advanced level proficiency.

Students apply to the overseas Capstone program for direct enrollment and internship in China.

They can expect that the university is going to teach them.

Whatever their undergraduate degree is, they are going to each them that in Chinese.

They're going to be immersed in Chinese society and culture.

They are going to have to live that way every day.

So I intern at a place that is an import export trading company.

It's helped my Chinese in so many ways. I've learned a lot of new vocabulary because it's all very specialized.

The ROTC Chinese Language Flagship offers scholarships for qualified ROTC students, as well as support for civilian students pursuing nationally competitive scholarships.

To major in Chinese you could get Army ROTC scholarship for that major.

There's also Flagship funding. It can fund potentially up to two summers, one domestic and one abroad, and then of course, the whole capstone year.

Getting the scholarship, it's really helpful because now I won't have to pay out of pocket for the study abroad and I needed to do another study abroad in order to complete the flagship program.

If you are a highly motivated student interested in learning Chinese, living and working abroad, commissioning as a second lieutenant in the US Army, and preparing yourself for an exciting life and important career using foreign language skills in a globalized world, then we encourage you to apply to the ROTC Chinese Language Flagship today.
