Required courses

Educational Objectives:

To cultivate individuals with both professional competence and research capabilities in Chinese literature, capable of integrating theory and practice.

Core Competencies:

  1. Ability to interpret original classics and analyze texts.
  2. In-depth understanding of the globalization and localization of Chinese literature on a global scale.
  3. Ability to independently research and solve problems in the field of Chinese literature.

Course Descriptions:

The institute adopts a comprehensive academic perspective by integrating Chinese literature from various regions, including Mainland China, Taiwan, Hong Kong, Macao, Malaysia, Europe, America, and other regions. The study of the Chinese language and literature is not just a discipline but also a method of reexamining and reflecting on the world. The institute critically examines issues such as monolingual policies, colonialism, and the territorial boundaries of nation-states. The framework of "Chinese literature" presented by the institute does not focus solely on Chinese literature emphasized by Chinese departments or Taiwanese literature emphasized by Taiwanese literature departments. Instead, it emphasizes research in Chinese literature from various regions. Chinese literature in China and Taiwan is just a part of the Chinese language literature in different regions, included or contrasted with other regions' Chinese language writings, forming a comparative literature within the same language system.

Basic Core Courses (Required):

  • "World History of Chinese Literature" taken during the first, second, and third years (107, 108, 109) is a required course.
  • "Chinese Literature Topics: ○○" (with the annotation of regions such as Malaysia, Hong Kong, etc.) is an elective course that can be counted as required.
