Aims

The Bachelor of Arts with Honours in Language Studies and Translation (Full-time) degree programme aims to enable students to learn a range of linguistic and translation skills, including how to deal with the cultural dimension of translation, account for the differences between the English and Chinese languages and to handle translated texts in specialized areas (e.g. law, business, public administration and/or media).

A degree holder in this programme with a relevant teacher training qualification is eligible to apply for exemption from the Language Proficiency Requirement for Teachers (English Language). Applications should be forwarded to the Education Bureau.

Objectives

The overall objective of the Bachelor of Arts with Honours in Language Studies and Translation (Full-time) degree programme is to bring students to a level of practical proficiency that will enable them to be linguistically and analytically equipped to complete extended language and translation assignments and deal with linguistically and culturally-related problems in language studies and translation, thus increasing their confidence as practising language professionals.
