BA (Hons) in Contemporary English Studies,
I have made many decisions in life but choosing to pursue BA (Hons) in Contemporary English Studies at Lingnan has to be one of the best ones! Like most other English programmes offered in various universities, this programme requires students to study both linguistics and literature. This might make you wonder, how is studying English at Lingnan different from other universities then? Well, to answer that, the English department in Lingnan is very special because we have the most dedicated and devoted professors who are always there for their students! Whether you have one question or ten, they are all just one email away! In fact, they instil so much confidence in their students by assuring them that everything is achievable. If you are like me, who had never studied literature before but would still like to pursue English, this degree is the best for you. It is because, not only did my professors made me overcome my fear of ‘literature’, they made me fall in love with literature by allowing me to see how powerful it is! Linguistics or literature, the English curriculum at Lingnan makes sure that every student can follow and is learning at the same pace. What’s even better is that, this degree opens doors to countless professions which includes but is not limited to teaching, translation, marketing and public relations. Hence, I believe this degree has not just equipped me with the knowledge required to be an English teacher, it has also showed me what a responsible and passionate teacher looks like.
