The Education University of Hong Kong


Bachelor of Arts (Honours) in Language Studies (Chinese Major) 語文研究榮譽文學士 (中文主修)

BA(Lang Studies)-CN

Short Description

The Chinese Major track of the BA(Lang Studies) programme aims to graduate students who are critical thinkers equipped with analytical skills to learn from varied social and situated contexts, and who have developed a global world view based upon a heightened level of cross-cultural awareness and intercultural sensitivity. Our Chinese majors will also be reflective learners and as such should become acutely aware of the need for life-long learning in a globally dynamic multicultural environment. Through a carefully integrated curriculum, students majoring in Chinese will acquire a solid foundation in their major with a global perspective.
