M. Sc. in Contemporary Chinese Studies

The MSc Contemporary Chinese Studies, for entry in 2017, is a three-term, twelve-month course designed to provide high quality graduate research training with an emphasis on appreciation of research methods and on deepening candidates understanding of contemporary China. The degree includes coursework and a dissertation. Unlike the MPhil Modern Chinese Studies degree, a two-year course, which includes intensive Chinese language instruction, the MSc Contemporary Chinese Studies does not focus on language, although candidates should have some familiarity with Chinese language. Admission is through the School of Interdisciplinary Area Studies. See MSc Contemporary Chinese Studies
