Chinese Language & Literature


Hak-gwan Room #405






The Chinese Language and Literature major helps students appreciate the origin of the Oriental spirit, by providing them with a thorough understanding of the Chinese language, and culture which paved the way for many other Oriental cultures.
The focus is on the Chinese language, literature and culture. The curriculum combines language, culture, history, and philosophy, as Chinese literature is closely related to the general academic ideologies including Chinese classics and history.


The Chinese language and literature department was established in 1981, making rapid progress in spite of its short history.
The master's program was launched in 1989, followed by the doctoral program in 2000, producing talents who are contributing to the academic world. Moreover, since China's reformation and open policy, graduating students hold important positions in various professional fields, as active exchanges with China have led to increased interest in the Chinese language.
The department has gained importance as the number of students choosing the major has grown significantly according to such trends.
The fellowship pact with Beijing University in 1999 and with Fudan University in 2003 has led to active academic exchanges between exchange visiting faculty and students.
