About this course

The dual degree provides students with an understanding of the business environment and its relevance to the international hotel and tourism industry. This training is complemented by the studies of society and culture and analytical and communication skills offered in the Bachelor of Arts.

When this program is studied at a standard load of four courses per semester, the final semester will comprise part-time study of only two courses. Students may decide to overload in previous semesters or undertake study in a summer semester to reduce the total duration of the program.

Learning Chinese at UQ opens a window to understanding Chinese culture and the Chinese way of life. A rapidly changing society with a history dating back to the 17th Century BC, China is also a multiethnic society consisting of 56 ethnic groups with a rich heritage of cultural diversity. In recent decades China has played an increasingly active and significant role in world culture, economy, and politics. The Chinese language is a key to understanding the redistribution of power in the Asia-Pacific region. There are separate majors for native speakers of Mandarin and other Chinese dialects. You can undertake specialist courses in literature, culture, translation, business and language teaching.
