Bachelor of Arts (Honours) in Chinese Language, Literature and Communication
BACHI students will acquire not only the broad based knowledge on both traditional and modern Chinese language and literature, but also the applied knowledge on communication skills with career-oriented contents. Core courses in Hong Kong literature, linguistics and creative writing encourage students to appreciate their hometown and unique identity within the Chinese community.
