Course Description

Please note that this BA programme will undergo a structural reform for 2019/20. Although the overall scope and learning outcomes will remain mostly unchanged, there may be minor changes to the core module and the selection of guided options. These changes are designed to improve the student experience and engagement with the subject matter, based on feedback from current and previous students.

This programme combines the study of Chinese language with the study of China-related subjects in various disciplines. Compared to the existing single-subject BA Chinese degree, there is less emphasis on language learning. Compared to the existing 2-degree BA Chinese and… degree, there is more space to study China-related courses in a range of disciplines. The programme also differs from the existing offerings in that there is no year abroad included.

Through the course of the three years, students take units in modern Chinese at the appropriate level. They can start as complete beginners, or they can start from higher levels. Progression through a total of four levels is offered, whereas for those who exceed the highest level, language-based courses in literature and film, as well as a language-based dissertation, are available. The programme also offers courses in regional languages, namely Cantonese and Hokkien.

The programme will be attractive both to students who wish to study China-related subjects without a strong emphasis on language, and to students who wish to work at an advanced language level within a more traditional “sinological” framework, as it is offered at most other universities.
