Why this programme?

  • Intensive and discipline-specific training in Chinese language and literature
  • Both practical and professional training in Chinese language, e.g. Chinese Mass Media and Chinese for Academic Purposes
  • A wide variety of Chinese literature subjects including classical and modern literature as well as various literature types, e.g. Classical Chinese Poetry, Selected Readings in Hong Kong Fiction, and Chinese Film and Fiction

 

This new programme, originally an area of concentration under Associate of Arts, has been well received by students. It has therefore developed into an independent programme which was approved by PolyU to ensure better articulation with bachelor’s degree programmes, with the ultimate aim of enhancing graduates’ chances of going to university.  
 
This programme aims to enhance your Chinese language proficiency and offer you professional training in Chinese language and literature, so as to equip you with comprehensive knowledge of Chinese linguistics, Classical Chinese literature, Modern Chinese literature, and Chinese Writing. Upon graduation, you will be well prepared for further academic pursuit in Chinese in university.

This new programme has yet to graduate its first cohort of students, so no articulation rate and employment rate are available.  The articulation rate for Associate of Arts (Area of Concentration: Chinese Language and Literature), another programme of a similar nature, was nearly 77% in 2017.
