University of Westminster

Course Introduction

At Westminster we train competent linguists in modern languages ready to enter graduate employment. We place particular emphasis on employability and the contemporary cultural contexts. The course will enable you to achieve a good or high level of linguistic competence in Chinese in all four skill areas (reading, writing, listening and speaking), and demonstrate a good or high degree of proficiency in mediating between Chinese and English.

Course Modules

First year core modules cover the Chinese world and the word, language and culture, and words, meanings and texts; you will choose an option module from subjects including intercultural communication, objects and meaning, language myths, Shakespeare and performance, poetry, or a Westminster elective from across the University. The core modules in the second year are expressions of Chinese culture, and history and discourse; you will then choose two modules from a wide range of subjects including e'collaboration, culture and conflict, screening memory, literary linguistics, child language acquisition, writing revolutions, a work placement module, or a Westminster elective. In your final year, alongside your dissertation and a core module on themes in Chinese studies, you will choose four options from a wide range of subjects including gender matters, happiness, politics and literature, language contact and change, advanced discourse analysis, an internship, or a Westminster elective.
