Program Information

School:University of Calgary
Faculty:Arts
Degree:Bachelor; Co-op
Field of Study:East Asian Languages, Literatures, and Linguistics, General
Description:

East Asian Language Studies scholars ask questions such as: Can the Chinese writing system of Hanzi/Kanji become the universal written language? Now that Japan and China are both superpowers, how are the two countries influencing one another in terms of culture? How do East Asian language learners achieve the desired proficiency in listening, speaking, reading and writing?



East Asian Language Studies will provide you with solid training in all four language skills (reading, writing, speaking and listening) in the two main East Asian languages, namely Chinese and Japanese. In addition to gaining profound knowledge of East Asian cultures, you will also choose to pursue advanced proficiency in one of the languages, and intermediate proficiency in the other.
