Pre-requisite: LAC3001


IMPORTANT: Students must elect to study EITHER the German OR the Chinese stream of this course by signing up for the correct lecture and tutorial for their chosen language. The Language and Culture Special Project A is designed to allow students the opportunity to devise an individual project in conjunction with a supervisor. The project will be built upon the language skills and cultural knowledge already acquired to this level and will normally involve the application of such skills and knowledge to a specific area of study or activity. The course is flexible in terms of the variety of ways in which students may successfully complete assessment. To complete this course students can elect to devise a special project involving a linguistic study of an aspect of German or Chinese, a cultural or historical study of German or Chinese society, a study of German or Chinese music, literature, theatre or visual arts, and a project in conjunction with a local German- or Chinese-speaking community or organisation. Other possible topics or means of successfully completing this course can be approved at the discretion of a supervisor.
