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. In response to the multimedia development, mastery in multimedia production ensures that our graduates will stay ahead of the curve in the digital age. In order to enhance students’ competitiveness, internship and subsidized summer study tours are organized every year to enrich the students’ learning experience, strengthen their language skills, and broaden their overseas cultural exposure.
