The Contemporary China Studies Programme is designed to maximize your opportunities to learn about AND experience present-day China during your 4 or 5 months sojourn in Shanghai. A choice of academic courses, all taught in English by prominent Fudan University professors and lecturers, provides you with theoretical and academic knowledge on recent developments in China in areas such as culture and society, business and economics, politics and diplomacy. The language course, taught at beginners and intermediate levels, allows you to get a taste of what it takes to speak and read Chinese, or improve your language skills if you have already started to learn the language. And an internship provides a unique chance to understand how it is to work in a company in China and develop new professional skills. In combination with regular group excursions and social activities introducing you to traditional Chinese culture, CCSP is a multi-disciplinary academic programme that provides in-depth theoretical and practical perspectives on China’s emerging status as a global power.
