Chinese Studies and History BA Hons
Lancaster’s joint Chinese Studies and History degree is taught by the Department of Languages and Cultures in conjunction with the Department of History. This degree includes an international placement in Year 3.
Your Chinese Studies programme gives you the opportunity to acquire high-level language skills while gaining a thorough understanding of the country’s historical, cultural, social and political background in a global context. Chinese may be studied at either beginner or advanced level. In History, you will develop your critical abilities studying modules in British, European and American world history.
Your first year comprises an exploration of the Chinese language and its cultural context as well as the core history module, From Medieval to Modern: History and Historians. Alongside this, you can choose your third subject for first year from the History module, People, Places, and the Past or from a list of courses provided to you.
Building on your language skills in Year 2, you will have the opportunity to study the culture, politics and history of the Chinese-speaking world in more depth in the core module, Shaping Contemporary China: Moments and Movements. You can also select a module that is international in scope and promotes comparative understanding at a global level, such as Society on Screen: The Language of Film. You will combine these with the core module, Making History: Contexts, Sources and Publics and select options such as The Cold War in Europe.
Spending your third year - the International Placement Year - abroad in a Chinese-speaking country gives you the opportunity to develop your language proficiency while deepening your intercultural sensitivity. You can study at a partner institution or conduct a work placement.
