Asian and International Studies MA


Course Description

This is a tri-campus MA programme. Students study on the UK campus for the first semester and move to either Ningbo or Kuala Lumpur campus for their second semester. It is a genuinely distinctive programme allowing students to study the countries of Asia, and the relations between them (and between the rest of the world).

The course is taught by academics across the University's UK, China and Malaysia campuses, who are experts on Asian politics, history and international relations.

An MA Asian and International Studies is an ideal foundation to embark on a career in Asia. The time spent in either China or Malaysia will develop your knowledge and experience of the culture and politics of the region.

The core module, 'Global Asia', will introduce you to Pan-Asian themes such as nationalism, globalisation, environmental challenges, resource politics and gender relations. It challenges the prevailing conception of 'Asia Rising' as a new phenomenon and will also allow you to specialise on specific country or regional studies.

This course will enable you to immerse yourself in the culture of these countries, and to take language options if required. Accommodation for all three semesters will be organised by the University, although it is not covered by the course fees.
