This joint honours programme gives you the opportunity to study the history of art and Chinese studies in equal depth. The programme takes advantage of the University of Edinburgh's long-standing tradition of studying Asian literary and visual culture, and draws on expertise across the university. One of the world’s earliest civilisations, China is once again a major global power; one whose scale makes an understanding of regional and cultural differences essential. Edinburgh is the only university in Scotland to offer undergraduate honours programmes in Chinese, enabling you to learn modern standard Chinese in the context of Chinese history and culture, past and present, alongside a broader survey of the History of Art. On this degree programme, you will learn to read, write and speak modern standard Chinese to an advanced level using both simplified- and traditional-form characters. As you progress through the degree, you will learn Chinese-English and English-Chinese translation skills. You will spend Year 3 at a university in China or Taiwan where you will develop your language skills and experience the countries' rich culture.
