Bachelor of Arts



Required courses in the Department are arranged to strengthen students’ ability to read and understand historical materials, thus fostering their creative and analytical as well as literary abilities. Coursework is designed to stimulate students to deepen their understanding of the tradition of Chinese thought.

Courses can be selected from the classics, history, philosophy, or traditional literature, as well as from contemporary thought. To better prepare our students’ abilities to enter the job market after graduation, the Department has recently started offering a broader range of courses.

Students are allowed to select courses from outside the department offer and, depending on the students’ abilities, they are also permitted to choose a Minor degree or double major in other subject.

To develop its course varieties, the Department has set up a Curriculum Committee, which meets regularly each semester to make adjustments to the courses offered and their contents.
