What will I learn?

Our BA Linguistics and Chinese course will enable you to delve into the science of language - an everyday phenomenon which impacts our lives on an individual and a global scale.You will study topics such as the ways in which children acquire their first language, differences between the speech of men and women, how the sound systems and grammars of different types of language are organised, what happens when speakers of different languages come into contact, and much else besides.You can also achieve near-native proficiency in Mandarin Chinese while studying the language within its cultural and historical context.Language study offers much more than just language fluency. You'll explore diverse aspects of the culture, society, history, politics and literature of the countries in which Mandarin Chinese is spoken, helping you to develop intercultural awareness and communication skills - both highly valued by employers.You'll benefit from excellent teaching, student support and cutting-edge study facilities, as well as from the vibrancy and cultural diversity of Manchester itself, Western Europe's most multilingual city.With placement options available at partner universities and in professional environments in several Chinese-speaking countries, a compulsory third year abroad gives our undergraduate students unforgettable and invaluable personal and professional experience.Our course will help you to develop analytical and problem-solving skills. Often dealing with granular and complex data, your combination of humanities and scientific understanding will allow you to make connections across multiple fields of employment.
