Course summary

Our China & Globalisation MSc provides an introduction to the causes and consequences of China’s rise from comparative and global perspectives. It will equip you with the conceptual and research tools necessary for the critical analysis of China’s social, political, and economic trends, and support your understanding of Chinese public policies, business strategies and modes of international cooperation.

Key benefits:

  • Offers you a theoretically informed understanding of contemporary China, focusing on the interactions of economic, political and social factors for sustainable development.
  • A wide range of optional modules which draw on expertise from across King’s.
  • We accept students from a wide range of academic backgrounds, and previous knowledge of China and Chinese languages is not necessary.
  • You can substitute one taught module for an internship and a related written assignment where available. Our Internships Office will help in identifying suitable opportunities.

Description:

The ‘rise’ of China over the past three decades raises challenging questions about the relationships between politics and market expansion, international cooperation, business innovations, and cultural and social developments. Our course will provide you with the conceptual and research tools to critically understand these relationships from comparative and global perspectives.

Our MSc is based in our Lau China Institute and benefits from a dynamic staff strongly committed to research and teaching. They combine expertise in Chinese history and politics with specialisms in different theoretical traditions, including political science, the environment, economics, international relations, sociology and international business and coporate governance.

Career prospects:

This innovative course is designed to offer you practical and transferable skills for careers including academic research; entrepreneurship in public services and the private sector, including finance and investment, media and publishing; and leadership roles in international organisations and NGOs.
