Overview

A balanced course that develops both your language skills and your understanding of how China works. The language teaching is intensive but we teach Chinese from scratch, so you don’t need previous experience. You will spend a year at a Chinese university, as part of your course.

The course gives you special insights into China’s rapidly developing economy, its growing political influence and rich culture. Your study will extend to Taiwan, and you’ll develop a critical appreciation of a range of contemporary issues.

The list of history modules is designed to complement your Chinese studies. They cover various political, social and cultural themes, periods, countries and ways of thinking about the past. Outside the seminar room, you’ll get the chance to work on projects that bring history to life, like our student-run New Histories blog and WikiAmerica. On the History Workshop module you’ll work alongside an academic on a research project.
