The dramatic social and economic transformation of China, one of the most populous and rapidly developing nations in the world, is a major historical event of the twentieth century. In connection to this unparalleled transformation, demand for knowledge of what is taking place in China and its global implications is greater than ever before.

About

The Master of Arts in China Development Studies [MAChDS] programme emphasises a comprehensive understanding of China through its global-local interactions and regional variations in politics, economy, trade, investment, environment, policy making, tourism and urban development. The prime objective is to educate students to become capable personnel for firms or institutions in both private and public sectors that have strong interest in China-related business and development.

The programme provides an opportunity to local and international students for systematic training and independent research on development issues in contemporary China. 

Programme Structure

The curriculum includes Chinese economies; international trade and foreign direct investment; China's cultural and urban development; climate change and environmental resources in China; public policies and regional development; China's environment and sustainable development; globalisation and spatial economic transformation; cultural tourism; sustainable urban and transport planning; land governance and development and China field trip. Moreover, the curriculum has a capstone experience component that provides the students a platform to acquire research skills through completion of a dissertation or directed project under the supervision of a designated teacher.  The Contemporary China Seminar Series is also an integral part of the programme
