Course summary

Overview

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.

Course detail

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 corporate governance. The expertise of the associates of the Lau China Institute spans international trade law, healthcare regulation and biomedicine innovations, film and media, and military and maritime strategies. Our course is designed to provide you with high quality graduate research training for a career related to China. It aims to broaden and deepen your understanding of contemporary China and familiarise you with major research methods currently used in the field of China studies. Our MSc is a platform both for further graduate work or enhancing your employment prospects. You do not need language or subject knowledge to begin this course. This course is primarily taught at the King’s College London Strand Campus. Our location in the heart of London gives you access to the wealth of cultural resources and institutions throughout the capital, as well as experience of life in one of the world’s most exciting and diverse cities.

Teaching and assessment

We will use a delivery method that will ensure students have a rich, exciting experience from the start. Face to face teaching will be complemented and supported with innovative technology so that students also experience elements of digital learning and assessment. Most modules will be assessed by essay or a written examination, and by class participation and attendance. An oral presentation will be required if you fail the participation and attendance component. The dissertation module assessment will be on the dissertation alone (up to 12,000 words). Research methods will be assessed by means of a 2000-word assignment and a dissertation 1000-word dissertation proposal.

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.
