Programme specification:

The programme will:

- Enable students to study the disciplines of Chinese and Theatre/Performance to the same depth as Single Honours students of the disciplines, but with less breadth in each. This means that Joint Honours students will normally be required to take compulsory modules and a subset of the optional modules that are also part of the corresponding Single Honours degree programmes, and that they will be assessed on those modules using criteria identical to those applied to Single Honours students. Joint Honours students will reach the same levels of fluency and accuracy in Chinese as Single Honours students;
- At Level One, allow students the flexibility to extend their intercultural and interdisciplinary knowledge and skills by means of a cornerstone module: Introduction to Audio-Visual Cultures, exploring a particular aspect of the field of Theatre/ Performance;
- At Levels Two and Three, allow students to choose, within certain parameters, optional modules from the full range available within each discipline, and thereby devise pathways of their own choosing;
- Require students to undertake one year residence abroad in the second year at a Chinese university where students follow a prescribed course of study in language, and in some cases non-language courses;
- Give students at Level Three the opportunity to undertake an in-depth piece of independent research in the realms of theatre and performance including a case study of Chinese theatre and culture. In addition, students should use original source materials in the target language;
- Require students to acquire the flexibility of mind and variety of learning techniques needed to switch between the two disciplines;
- Provide a basis for further advanced study in either Theatre/Performance or Chinese, or in a cognate interdisciplinary area;
- Have the flexibility to allow students to change programme upon successful completion of Level One, subject to approval.
