The purpose of the study of Chinese language and literature is to become a competent person who is well-grounded in the language and literature of China, not only by acquiring a wide-ranging knowledge about Chinese history, philosophy, politics, economy, etc., which resides in the heart of Chinese literature, but also by conducting a historical study of Chinese literary movements, writers, and works ranging from ancient times to the present. In addition, we will be pursuing an intensive study of the structure of the language through the analysis of the phoneme, letter, and usage of Chinese.
