FromDate:01-06-2016 Attention:2381       Print

PROGRAMME DESCRIPTION

About a fifth of all the people in the world live in China. At the same time as China has the longest continuous culture surviving from ancient times, globalisation widely affects Chinese culture and society. And as a country, China will have big influence in the politics and economics of the twenty-first century. Chinese culture and society is undergoing dramatic changes in the era of globalisation and transformation.


English-instructed Master Program in Chinese Society and Public Policy (EMA) provides an excellent opportunity of studying the Chinese society for foreign individuals without sufficient preparation in Chinese. This program is designed with a special purpose to serve the increasing international attention to and research interests in the recent rapid development of China in diverse aspects of Chinese society. To overcome the entry barrier due to the unfamiliarity with Chinese, all courses are taught in English. Our mission is to enhance both the students’ analytical skills and their knowledge of China, with a purpose to establish a foundation for their future academic study or for their future professional career.
