Short Description

The Global China Studies program is designed to produce an elite group of graduates who can conduct critical analysis of issues related to China in a global context. It provides students with multi/interdisciplinary training in the humanities and social science through an integrated track or a social science track after a shared first-year curriculum. Heavy emphasis is also put on training students in both verbal and written communication.

To help equip students with a truly global outlook, our program provides all students with international exchange opportunities for one semester or one full academic year in very prestigious universities in Asia, Europe and the United States.

The skills and capabilities learned from this program will make our graduates highly suitable for positions in government, research institutes, business, NGOs, media, education and cultural institutions.
