English (Sanda University)
Updated: 2014-03-10

LOGO.jpgThis program is designed to provide students with an academic foundation of English listening, speaking, reading, writing, translation and interpretation. It also provides students with a comprehensive understanding of rhetoric, literature, and the society and culture of English speaking countries. Students may choose from three emphases: The English Teaching Emphasis fulfills teaching certification requirements and prepares students to teach in school districts around Shanghai. The Business English Emphasis focuses on vocabulary and topics used in the worlds of business, trade, finance, and international relations with reference to the communication skills needed for business communication – such as presentations, negotiations, meetings, correspondence and report writing. The Journalistic English Emphasis provides an intensive workshop for those interested in understanding the changing role of journalism in the new century and in learning the art of journalism ­either because they want to pursue careers as journalists or because they want a better sense of how journalism really works. The English Department’s central mission is to help students develop an expertise for responding to such academic orientations and thus equip them with the skills that employers seek, or simply satisfy their personal interests.
