China Studies  

China Studies is an interdisciplinary programme aimed at giving students a broad-based education on modern China - its language, culture, history, society, economy, governance, environment, and people. The programme combines the perspectives and curricular strengths of a variety of disciplines, including literature, linguistics, art history, history, philosophy, religion, anthropology, sociology, geography, politics, economics, journalism and communications. Graduates will be prepared to enter a wide range of careers in the public and private sectors in which a comprehensive and sophisticated understanding of China is essential to success.

China Studies is ideal for students whose interest in China crosses over disciplinary divides, as well as for international students who would like to learn the Chinese language and pursue a major or minor in China studies. It is also an ideal second major for those pursuing degrees in law, medicine, education, business, journalism, and social work.
