Why choose this field of study?

Did you know that knowledge of Asian languages is now one of the most highly valued skills in the job market? In fact, it is often considered a competitive advantage by employers. In addition, the rapid development of cross-cultural education and economic and business cooperation between the countries of Europe and China is creating unlimited career opportunities for those who speak Chinese. To meet these trends, we offer our students the opportunity to take a bachelor’s degree in English Studies with the Chinese language. So, if you want to significantly increase your qualifications, broaden your communication skills and stand out among candidates in recruitment processes – this program is just for you!

English Studies at the University of Economics and Human Sciences in Warsaw will help you develop your linguistic and professional skills as an English philologist. You’ll choose a specialization module from the following: Translation, Business, or Language Education. You will study Chinese from the first semester, and if after the first semester you decide that Chinese is too difficult or just not for you, you can change your choice to another foreign language offered by the university.

Note: Due to the nature of the program and the international community of students and faculty, the program is conducted in English and is therefore recommended for candidates with at least a B2 language proficiency level.
