BSc in Global China Studies 理學士(環球中國研究)

GCS

Short Description

Global China Studies offers students a unique portfolio of knowledge about China through a global and comparative perspective. This is achieved through an interdisciplinary curriculum that explores the social, cultural, historical, economic and political developments within China, as well as its global influence and interactions. Training in comparative and advanced research methods provides students with the tools to conduct an original research project mentored by a dedicated faculty advisor in the final year. GCS students have ample opportunities to study abroad and pursue internships. To prepare our graduates for future leadership roles, the program emphasizes critical thinking, verbal and written communication, creativity, and collaboration.

Remarks:

An ELITE program prepares you to conduct critical and comprehensive analysis of issues related to China in global context. Its inter-disciplinary training in humanities and social science will help you develop skills for future leadership in academic, political or commercial circles.
