More information 


The Bachelor of Arts in Chinese Language and Culture looks closely at a country that is a burgeoning contributor to world economy, politics, and culture. If you are a student who is excited by the idea of an adventure and the challenges of studying a different language and culture, then we are willing to go the distance with you. Whether you choose to pursue a career in international relations and liaise with Chinese companies from home or dive into work in China, you will be aptly prepared.

From the perspective of language, our degree in Chinese Language & Culture presumes little or no prior knowledge of the language on the student’s part. Initially, you will begin with the rudiments of the Chinese language, progressing toward a working business level, while exploring the vast culture of China.

The program brings together several aspects of Chinese culture that will together serve as entry point into Chinese culture. You will come to understand more about traditional and contemporary literature, history, business practices, social sciences, and even pop culture.

Students with any high school credential are eligible, pending satisfaction of admission requirements.

Programme structure

Within students’ first two years, they will focus on completing AUM’s General Education Program (42 US / 84 ECTS credits), in addition to being introduced to specialized courses in language and culture. In the third and fourth year, students will focus increasingly on topics relevant to their major. To earn a Bachelor’s degree, students must satisfactorily complete at least 120 US / 240 ECTS credits, fulfill all the requirements for the Chinese Language and Culture degree, and achieve a cumulative GPA of 2.00 or higher.

This degree is designed to be completed in four years, assuming students complete the required courses and do not interrupt their study. Details about leave of absence, standards of progress, and maximum time allowed to complete courses can be found in the American University of Malta’s Catalog.
