What will I learn?

Learn two major world languages and deepen your understanding of China and Russia, their culture, history, and their important roles on the world stage.We teach Chinese and Russian from beginners’ level, but if you already have some knowledge of either language we can normally accommodate you.Through core and optional modules, you’ll learn both languages while gaining knowledge of Russia, China and East Asia more broadly. You’ll develop language skills in Chinese while exploring the society and culture of one of the world’s major economic powers, and build your proficiency in Russian while exploring its rich culture and history.In this five-year degree you’ll spend two years abroad, with a year in China and a year in Russia, improving your language skills and gaining first-hand experience.
