Revamped English programme sharpens students’ competitive edge
To strengthen students’ professional competence, PolyU’s Department of English has revamped its undergraduate programme BA (Hons) in English Studies for the Professions (BAESP).
The revamped programme allows students to tailor-make their learning in three well-defined focal areas: Language Sciences, Global Communicative Competence, and English for the Professions. In addition to receiving training in linguistics and practical communication skills from internationally recognised researchers and practitioners, students can also take new courses such as data analytics and forensic linguistics, which are designed to meet future industry demands.
Past graduates of BAESP excel in industries where a high level of English competence and professional communication are needed, such as education, media and journalism, publishing, marketing and advertising, public relations, human resources, and the civil service.
