For a graduate who understands China and Japan, the career possibilities are endless. This balanced programme of language study and lecture-based modules helps you develop a critical understanding of China while gaining additional Japanese language skills. You'll learn Chinese and Japanese language from scratch, which will be complemented by modules about Chinese society, such as history, culture or politics, and you'll spend a year studying in China at Nanjing University. Through optional modules, you'll get the opportunity to study East Asia as a region, exploring Chinese issues in a regional or global context. Modules on contemporary Japan are also available and cover issues relating to history, society and politics. On this degree, we only teach Japanese from scratch. If you already have a qualification in the language higher than GCSE, we can't offer you a place.
