Chinese Area Studies (CAS) is a specialisation programme under the Study Board of International Affairs.
Chinese Area Studies can be chosen as an integral part of existing Master’s programmes, for instance:
- Development and International Relations
- European Studies
- Culture, Communication and Globalization
- International Business Communication, English (SIV)
Chinese Area Studies enables students to focus on "China" as a particular field of specialisation within their chosen Master’s degree programme.
Chinese Area Studies provides a broad understanding of Chinese society, history and culture, economic and political development, as well as the scale of China's impact on the world economy and international relations.
A series of weekly lectures introduce China in an integrated and interdisciplinary manner. Through this approach students will be capable of comprehending and analysing China-related issues from a multi-faceted perspective.
