Global China Studies
An interdisciplinary major in the School of Humanities and Social Science
Global China Studies offers students a unique portfolio of knowledge about China through a global and comparative perspective. This is achieved through an interdisciplinary curriculum that explores the social, cultural, historical, economic and political developments within China, as well as its global influence and interactions. Training in comparative and advanced research methods provides students with the tools to conduct an original research project mentored by a dedicated faculty advisor in the final year. GCS students have ample opportunities to study abroad and pursue internships. To prepare our graduates for future leadership roles, the program emphasizes critical thinking, verbal and written communication, creativity, and collaboration. Previous cohorts of GCS graduates have landed jobs in a wide range of sectors, including business and finance, public service, education, media, community organizations, cultural institutions, and research institutions, both locally and overseas.
