Our BA in Chinese Studies programme offers students the opportunities to make the most of CUHK’s unique traditions, resources and innovations in Chinese Studies. CHUK has been known throughout China and the world as a hub for scholars and students fascinated with exploring the richness and complexity of China.
Our multi-disciplinary, primarily English-taught undergraduate programme offers an integrated exploration of the complexities of Chinese history, economy, governance, business, culture, language, literature and contemporary society. With an emphasis on interactive teaching, international exchange, and immersive study, our programme is ideal for students intent on becoming globally-oriented China experts, cross-cultural communicators and network-builders. Hosting students from the Stanford university Bing Overseas Programme along with other international exchange students, our Chinese Studies courses deepen understanding through open-minded engagement with a wide range of perspectives.
Our curriculum provides a range of opportunities for students to learn language, communication and analytical skills and explore the diversity of Chinese studies. International students will take Chinese language foundation courses whereas native Chinese speakers will take courses on skills communicating on China.
We welcome all interested applicants of any background, and look forward to the next generation’s journey into exploring China and all things Chinese.
