Course Aims

Through teacher and peer initiated learning activities like video review, case studies, role play, lectures, class discussion, and assigned reading, students from different backgrounds and fields of study will identify the latest developments in China’s socio-political transformation, especially the major challenges and opportunities arising from China’s modernisation during the age of globalisation. Students will then use this knowledge to evaluate the implications of current socio-political developments in China from a cross-disciplinary perspective based on a comparative and cross-cultural approach. Through completing a self-initiated semester-long group project, students will finally apply their knowledge of China’s socio-political transformation gained in this course together with their own discipline-specific knowledge to discover potential career options in China and develop their individual career goal in the context of China’s current and future development.
