Myanmar Department


We help students understand, appreciate and maintain Myanmar’s national spirit, culture, language, customs and traditions. It seeks to nurture students to be ethical, wise and responsible citizens.


The Myanmar Department’s objectives are to:

1. develop and deliver modern, well-structured courses on Myanmar language, literature, courses and traditions.

2. encourage interest and undertake research in the field of Myanmar Studies

3. create an educational ethos which encourages students to recognize their future roles in creating an ethical, just and fair society in Myanmar.

The Department of Myanmar provides undergraduate, Honours and Master students with a deeper understanding of Myanmar language, literature and culture. Students have opportunities to study both ancient and contemporary Myanmar Literature.  The Department prides itself on preserving the Myeik dialect  which is related to the our ancient history. Students not only learn good communication skills for the future, but also gain an  appreciation of our unique culture.
