Aims and Characteristics

Programme Aims

The BACBS programme aims to produce all-round graduates with (1) biliterate and trilingual proficiency, (2) a good knowledge of language/sign-mediated communication, especially in the contexts of East Asian and Anglo-American cultures, (3) profession-specific literacy and skills in corporate communication and/or translation and interpreting and/or linguistics and speech sciences, and (4) a basic understanding of the concepts underpinning the aforementioned outcomes.


This programme is tailor-made for students who plan to develop their careers in translation, interpretation, linguistics and speech sciences, corporate communication or other language-related professions. The programme is multidisciplinary and thus well suited for students from the arts, commerce/social studies or science streams, as long as they are interested in language and communication.
