About

Lancaster University's joint Chinese Studies and English Literature (Hons) degree is taught by the Department of Languages and Cultures and the Department of English Literature and Creative Writing.

Overview

Key facts

The programme enables you to acquire high-level Chinese language skills while gaining a thorough understanding of China’s historical, cultural, social and political background in a global context. Chinese may be studied at either beginner or advanced level. In English Literature you will study a wide range of authors, genres, historical periods, literary movements, techniques and critical approaches.

The first year at Lancaster University’s Chinese Studies and English Literature (Hons) comprises an exploration of the Chinese language and its cultural context, as well as a core module in English Literature. Alongside this, you can choose another English Literature module such as World Literature or Introduction to Creative Writing.

Career

As well as language and subject-related skills, a degree in languages develops rich interpersonal, intercultural, cognitive and transferable skills. Combined with the communication, self-expression, research and critical understanding skills gained studying English Literature, a wide range of business and public-sector roles will be open. Graduates go on to work in publishing, journalism, librarianship, television and the media, IT, business development, civil service, events management, finance, research and sales, as well as teaching and translating both in the UK and abroad.
