MSc Modern Chinese Cultural Studies


Course Description

Programme description

This programme is based at the University’s Scottish Centre for Chinese Studies, which has an international reputation for research excellence in modern Chinese literature, media and mass culture.

It provides you with the opportunity to develop your knowledge and understanding of cultural issues of modern China, and allows you to develop analytical skills as you apply cultural and literary theories to the context of modern China.

You will be trained in the study of Chinese texts, and learn to assess them in the context of current academic discourse in Chinese studies, leading to an understanding of changing perceptions of key issues in Chinese cultural studies.

Programme structure

Over two semesters, you will take compulsory and option courses, plus research skills courses. You will then complete an independently researched dissertation. There is an option to study Chinese language, as a beginner or intermediate learner.

Career opportunities

You will gain a foundation on which you may choose to pursue doctoral studies, potentially leading to an academic career. Your skills will also be suited to a career in a number of fields that are concerned with Chinese issues.

Alternatively, you may choose to apply the transferable skills you gain in project management, research and communication to an unrelated career.
