Message from the Head


The Department of Chinese Culture was established in September 2008. Its mission is to impart to students the knowledge about the culture of China to help them broaden their intellectual horizon, and reach an integrated understanding of the relationship between self and society, so that they can develop foundations for their future career, improve the quality of their life and become a responsible national and world citizen in this age of globalisation.


The Department has many distinctive features. For example it has a broad curricular coverage, which includes Chinese Literature, Chinese History, Chinese Philosophy, Chinese Religion and Chinese Art. The curricular contents are delivered in both Chinese (Putonghua) and English. These and other features enable the Department to better present the characteristics and the values of the culture of China, better explore the reasons of its enduring influence, and enrich the multicultural, multi-lingual environment in the Faculty of Humanities at PolyU.


To fulfill its mission, in addition to offering General University Requirements subjects for all PolyU students, the Department offers programmes related to the culture of China: a top-up BA (Hon) in Bilingual Interdisciplinary Chinese Studies, a Minor in Chinese Culture for undergraduate students, a MA in Chinese Culture as well as a Research Postgraduate programme up to the PhD.
