The Faculty of Arts has implemented a hybrid admissions model starting from the 2020 entry. Students may apply for admission to the Broad-based Programme or to a specific Major Programme. The Bachelor of Arts (Hons) in Chinese Language and Literature Programme is committed to providing students with a thorough training in Chinese language, literature, and culture. The acquisition of knowledge and skills of basic research and training in critical thinking enable students to achieve their academic goals, personal growth, and their commitment to lifelong learning and preparation for future careers. This serves the University’s common goal of “Whole Person Education”, and empowers students to contribute to both the local and international communities.
Student Learning Experiences
In order to provide a wider scope of learning opportunities for students to develop their multi-perspective learning, the Department has been active in organising a large variety, some in series, of seminars and international conferences on inter-disciplinary studies. Students of the Department will have part in the Student Exchange Programme to experience studying abroad and broaden their horizons. Additionally, our Internship Programme includes learning programmes which are carried out in summer breaks at participating publisher, radio stations and secondary schools. The programme offers an opportunity for students to gain work experience.
