Chinese Religions and Culture

(For current Undergraduate students only)




Aims and Objectives

Through offering this Minor, the Department of Literature and Cultural Studies aims to provide a platform for our students to deepen their understanding of popular religious beliefs and customs in Chinese culture. By studying the three major religions in China, including Confucianism, Buddhism and Taoism, their impact on ancient and modern Chinese cultural history, and the cultural collision and religious transformation after the spread of Western religions in China, students will grasp the way religions and culture influence the life of Chinese as a whole. Students will also gain a more comprehensive understanding of the background of the composition and the concept of Chinese traditional culture through cultural modules.


Since the restructuring of the Faculty of Humanities, the teaching and learning of “culture” has become one of the major focuses of the Faculty’s development. Chinese religions, with a strong secular tendency, are closely related to cultural development. Therefore, LCS proposes to pass its research expertise in “religion” and “culture” to students through the CRC Minor. This training plays an important role in holistic education. Through this programme, the department aims to equip future teachers with critical religious and cultural awareness.
