BA (Hons) in Chinese Language and Literature
The Programme is committed to providing students with a thorough training in Chinese language, literature, and culture. Through acquiring knowledge of basic research methods, problem-solving skills, and critical thinking skills, students are not only able to achieve their academic goals but also to build moral character and be enlightened in various ways essential to their personal growth, such as the commitment to lifelong learning and preparation for future careers. This serves the University’s common goal of “Whole Person Education”, and empowers students to make a contribution to both the local and international communities.

The Department is well aware that it is important for students to be exposed to the real world early, so that they may acquire a global outlook and expand their horizons. To help students achieve these goals, the Department organises, co-organises, and/or takes part in the following study programmes:
Cultural Study Group
Cultural Study Group is a one-week or fortnight field trip held in June or December each year. Participants gain an in-depth understanding of the culture of the area. They also learn relevant knowledge by attending lectures organised by the host institutions. In the past, students have been to Changsha and Anyang.

The Student Exchange Programme
The Student Exchange Programme offers precious opportunities for students of the Chinese Department to spend one semester or one academic year studying outside Hong Kong. The most common destinations of our exchange students are universities in the mainland. However, a few students have chosen to study in countries further afield, such as Taiwan, the UK, the USA, Germany, Finland and the Czech Republic. In return, students from the mainland and other countries / regions come as exchange students to study at the Department.

Our Internship Programme includes learning programmes which are carried out in summer breaks at participating publishers, radio stations and secondary schools. The programme offers an opportunity for students to gain work experience. Statistics show that the programme significantly increases the success rate for new employment of the Department’s graduates. The programme has also won a good reputation for the University because the units give high credit to students who have completed the programme.
