Master Modern China Studies

The English-language M.A. program in Modern China Studies has a strong emphasis on academic research. The program focuses on phenomena and processes shaping modern and contemporary China, while also taking into account historical developments. Seminars introduce students to central topics, methods, and theories of Modern China Studies. During a one-semester study abroad, students have the opportunity to immerse themselves in a foreign academic culture, extend their language competence, and acquire intercultural sensitivity. Successful graduates of the program are qualified to work in China-related jobs in, for example, academia and higher education, foundations, journalism, and private companies. Students are also well prepared to conduct research at the doctoral level.
