Chinese

Polyvalent dual-major bachelor's degree program - Major field (with secondary-school teaching degree option)


If your interest in China is about more than fried noodles and Mulan, and you are enthusiastic about the culture, society and history of China, if you want to know about the role China is playing in contemporary and future politics, economics and the world, and if learning to read and write an entirely new language holds no fear for you, instead you are motivated by the challenge, could maybe even imagine teaching the language and culture of a fifth of humanity at high school, then you should think about studying Sinology at Freiburg! On the polyvalent dual-major Bachelor degree program in Chinese you can study Chinese as one of two majors and choose between the options “High school teacher training” and “Individual study planning”. With a wide-ranging education focusing especially on modern China, many up-to-date additional options, and the Institute of Sinology’s numerous cooperations with other China-related institutions, Sinology at Freiburg offers a unique learning environment in Germany and the optimal conditions for success in Sinology.

However, it is not possible to combine music and art.

Disclaimer
The versions of statutes with relevance to teaching and learning provided on this page by the Department of Legal Affairs (in particular admission and selection regulations as well as subject and examination regulations) are primarily for information purposes. This means that all amendments subsequently agreed upon by the University Senate have been integrated into the respective text of the original statutes; in the case of the examination regulations for bachelor's and master's degree programmes, this generally relates to extracts of the respective examination regulations (framework examination regulations, subject-specific provisions, and appendices).
The greatest care has been taken in writing these versions. Nevertheless, it cannot be entirely ruled out that errors may have occurred. Consequently, it is solely the officially announced statutes and statute amendments that are legally binding, i.e. as published in the Amtlichen Bekanntmachungen der Albert-Ludwigs-Universität Freiburg im Breisgau [de] or, up to the year 2000, in the official gazette of the Baden-Württemberg Ministry of Science, Research and the Arts.
