What is an MA in Chinese Studies? It is a graduate-level degree that focuses on the region of China. Most programs look at the modern and contemporary side of the country, but some may delve into ancient China. The courses available to scholars vary from school to school but could include Chinese language, modern Chinese film and theater, Chinese literature, ceramics in Chinese culture, culture and society of China, art and archaeology of the Silk Road, China and international politics, and Chinese law. Lectures, research, discussions and projects may be used throughout the program.

Not only does an MA in Chinese Studies give participants a better understanding of the history and culture of the region, but it can also provide students with a greater cultural awareness that allows them to thrive anywhere in the world. Scholars may also learn how to solve problems and communicate better, which can lead to a more successful career.

The tuition for any MA program can vary greatly from one school to the next. Often, the location of the school and the duration of the program play a big role in the cost of a degree.

An MA in Chinese Studies can lead to a variety of careers, but a student’s prospects may depend greatly on his or her previous education. For example, a person with a BA in Business may be able to use an MA in Chinese Studies to become an international business consultant. Other potential career options include Chinese translator, marketing specialist, public relations coordinator, student support administrator, lecturer, professor and diplomat.
