Description

Chinese studies (and Asian studies) units are taught in the school as well as in other schools of the Faculty of Arts and the Faculty of Business and Economics. Students majoring in Chinese studies are strongly recommended to complete a minor sequence in Chinese language. All Chinese language students are encouraged to enrol in Chinese studies or Asian studies units. These units have no Chinese language prerequisites and are open to students not studying Chinese language.

Units

First-year level

Students studying a sequence in Chinese studies must complete two units (12 points) from the following:

  • HSY1050 Understanding Asia 1: Foundations
  • HSY1060 Understanding Asia 2: Transformations

Second/Third-year level

Students studying a minor or major in Chinese studies must have completed the first-year sequence. In addition:

  • a minor requires completion of a further two units (12 points) from the core or elective units listed below
  • a major requires completion of a further six units (36 points) from the units listed below, including all core units. A minimum of three units must be taken at third year level.

Core

These two units have a minimal language requirement (completion of Chinese 2 or its equivalent). Special permission will be given to non-language students wishing to complete a Chinese studies major, to enrol in these units. Curriculum and assessment will be modified for these non-language students.

Electives

Available units include:

  • ASN2010 Global change and changing identities in Asia
  • ASN3071 Theory and research in Asian studies
  • ECC2890 Economic development of East Asia*
  • FIT3104 Chinese language information technology*

* This unit cannot be included in an arts double degree course. Further, non-Arts units are prohibited for students fulfilling a core Arts requirement, for example, non-Arts units cannot count towards the 96 point Arts core necessary to qualify for the Bachelor of Arts degree. Subject to written approval, Chinese language units and units from other schools may also be counted towards a Chinese studies major. Units counted towards a Chinese studies major may not also be counted towards another discipline. Approval for this, and for general advice on building a Chinese studies major should be sought from the Chinese studies program.
