Why study Chinese?

Chinese is the most widely-spoken language in the world, and the focus at undergraduate level is the development of communicative competency. By studying Chinese at undergraduate level, students will gain valuable insight into the rich cultural traditions and contemporary socio-cultural aspects of China.
The main aims of the Honours year are:
To enable students with an adequate background in Chinese Studies to pursue further study in one specialist area in more depth than is possible with a pass degree
To enhance students' capacity for independent research and to acquire research skills appropriate to their area of specialisation.
To train to a standard sufficient for enrolment in postgraduate research degrees, and for a specialist career. Achievement of first class or IIA honours allows direct entry to a PhD program.

What you can study

An Honours year in Chinese Studies focuses on developing and consolidating the knowledge and skills acquired during undergraduate study, with particular emphasis on utilising those skills in a sustained and purposeful way by conducting independent research.
Apart from content knowledge, employers and professionals value both the reliability and capacity for independent work, and the skill at writing substantial reports which are demonstrated by successful completion of Honours.
