Course essentials

The ‘rise’ of China over the past four decades raises challenging questions about the relationships between politics and market expansion, international cooperation, business innovations, and cultural and social developments. Our programme will provide you with the conceptual and research tools to critically understand these relationships from comparative and global perspectives.

Our MSc is based in the Lau China Institute and benefits from a dynamic staff strongly committed to research and education. They combine expertise in Chinese studies with specialisms in different theoretical traditions, including political science, the environment, economics, international relations, sociology and international business.

The expertise of the associates of the Lau China Institute spans international law, health and medicine, film and media, and military and maritime strategies.

Our programme is designed to provide you with high-quality graduate research training for a career related to China. It aims to broaden and deepen your understanding of contemporary China and familiarise you with major research methods currently used in the field of China studies. Our MSc is a platform both for further graduate work and enhancing your employment prospects. You do not need language or subject knowledge to begin this programme.
