China Daily (Canada) - - CHINA -

The Ti­betan lan­guage has al­ways been an es­sen­tial sub­ject at TU. In 2004, nearly 20 per­cent of its stu­dents ma­jored in the lan­guage.

With the univer­sity in­cor­po­rat­ing other spe­cial­ized col­leges, such as the med­i­cal school, in the past decade, the Ti­betan lan­guage pro­gram is not just about pop­u­lar­ity with stu­dents. The sub­ject now also boasts in-depth de­vel­op­ment, Phubu said.

“Ti­betan lan­guage stud­ies are a na­tional key sub­ject and in­volve more than 80 fac­ulty mem­bers. It at­tracts Ti­betan stu­dents as well as Han stu­dents,” he said.

The lan­guage course has about 80 Han un­der­grad­u­ate stu­dents each year, and they are trained to take trans­la­tion work in the re­gion.
