Short Description

The Department offers rigorous training in both Chinese language and literature. The curriculum is designed for a close examination of the characteristic features of the Chinese language, an in-depth introduction to traditional theories of language and modern linguistics, and a critical study of classical and modern Chinese literature. Students acquire a solid understanding of the field in general while, specialising in their own areas of interest. Our graduates are well versed in the great tradition of Chinese literature and are thoroughly prepared to take on new challenges as they embark on their professional or academic careers.
