Department of English Language and Literature

The Department of English Language and Literature at Shue Yan hosts the Bachelor of Arts with Honours in English, a programme which is unique in its curriculum design. The programme includes courses in four areas – literature, linguistics, translation and cultural studies. In its integration of these four streams the programme offers the opportunity for interdisciplinary explorations of the English language and its culture.
The programme encourages students to be creative in their exploration of knowledge spanning the visual arts, cinema, philosophy, ecology, the humanities, print culture and media culture. Students will explore and analyse a rich variety of cultural texts from Japanese manga and anime to video games, TV drama and films to contemporary and classic works of English Literature as well as Literature in English and creative non-fiction.
