The Department of Linguistics and Modern Languages is offering a two-year top-up degree programme—Bachelor of Arts in Bimodal Bilingual Studies—from September 2019. First of its kind in Asia, the new programme furthers CUHK’s efforts in promoting sign linguistics and deaf education, as well as building a cohesive society. Comprising courses from the Faculties of Arts, Education and Social Sciences and training in Hong Kong Sign Language, this interdisciplinary programme has its quota pegged at 20 for the first year.
