Students develop advanced levels of specialised linguistic proficiency in Modern Standard Chinese, so that they gain skills to work in Chinese-language media industries, as well as to reflect upon them. Using scholarly as well as Chinese media sources, students develop advanced skills in constructing nuanced texts for and about the Chinese media in the appropriate specialised register and genre, and using appropriate rhetoric and specialist Chinese vocabulary. Students investigate selected topics and problems from sources within and outside of mainland China, and also use these as a channel to understand contemporary China in both Chinese and international contexts.
