Chinese Studies undergraduate programmes offer a unique opportunity in the Faculty of Humanities because they are designed as a cross-disciplinary, cross-school endeavour.
Administratively based in the School of Arts, Languages and Cultures (LLC), Chinese Studies offers a strong core of language teaching provision by a dedicated team of full-time professionals, as well as a range of core modules in literature and culture in that school. The programme also benefits from the expertise of staff members in four other schools of the Faculty of Humanities to provide students with a wide range of modules in Chinese history, politics, sociology, economics and business. This structure allows students to tailor their programme to their own needs. We also offer a wide variety of degree combinations to nurture a range of intellectual interests.
Our academic staff are an international team on the cutting edge of research, using a variety of innovative pedagogical techniques to bring you the best of their experience. The resources at the University and throughout Manchester ensure abundant opportunities to engage with Chinese culture outside of the classroom, whether it be in museums, cinemas, theatres and restaurants, or among the large diasporic community in Manchester’s vibrant Chinatown and beyond.
