Chinese Studies

This programme provides students with in-depth knowledge of China's politics, economy, society and culture, together with the discipline-based, academic and transferable skills required to analyse and understand developments there. The resources and expertise of the School and other China- and Asia Pacific-related elements of the University make possible a wide range of options for study, research and linguistic development in relation to China and its interrelationships with the rest of the Asia Pacific region. As a result of the programme�s flexibility, it can be adapted to meet a range of postgraduate students� needs and interests. It enables you to apply academic analysis to your experience of China and/or to convert past training in another academic discipline for application to Chinese Studies, while providing the opportunity to develop or enhance relevant Chinese language skills.
