What will you learn?

Follow-up Master’s Degree Studies in Chinese Studies focus on contemporary China (the PRC, Taiwan, and China’s ‘diaspora’) as a meeting place of traditional Chinese and Western influences, where various projects related to the identity of modern China are being shaped. Studying this field leads students to an understanding of these processes at the level of the political and social formation of modern China, as well as on the level of discourse practices. An integral part of the study is the on-going, intensive learning of the Chinese language.

The Follow-up Master’s Degree in Chinese Studies assumes a knowledge of Chinese language, history and culture at the level of Bachelor’s Degree in Chinese Studies.

Main study areas:

1) The study of contemporary Chinese society and politics - the transformation of political institutions, political regimes and ideologies and their impact on the life of Chinese society.

2) Studying discourse practices in modern China (political thought, Chinese Marxism, modern Chinese literature, popular culture, religion, Chinese medicine, martial arts, film, etc.) to clarify the origin of these phenomena, their social and cultural context and meaning for modern Chinese identity.

3) The intensive study of Modern Chinese. The basics of the courses are Practical Chinese for Master’s Degree I-IV, complemented by other courses developing specific skills (intensive one-to-one conversation, translation seminars, written Chinese, conference presentation in Chinese).
