Course summary

One of the world’s earliest civilisations, China is once again a major economic and political global power - one whose scale makes an understanding of regional and cultural differences essential. Reflecting the growing importance of China in the world economy, this joint programme provides an excellent basis for careers in international business or finance, as well as the public and not-for-profit sectors. Edinburgh is the only university in Scotland to offer undergraduate honours programmes in Chinese, enabling you to learn modern standard Chinese in the context of Chinese history, literature and culture, past and present, and alongside Economics. We specialise in teaching students with little or no prior knowledge of the language. On this programme, you will learn to read, write and speak modern standard Chinese to an advanced level, to read classical Chinese and to develop translation skills. You will also acquire a broad knowledge and understanding of key economic and social issues, principles, models and associated mathematical and statistical techniques, along with their applications and policy implications. You will spend Year 3 at a university in China or Taiwan.
