Chinese Politics in a Globalized World
Spring semester course in Shanghai, China, at the Nordic Centre and School of International Relations and Public Affairs, Fudan University. One semester, three course modules, 30 ECTS.
Our Chinese Politics in a Globalized World program is up and running, and after a first successful run in spring 2012, we are preparing for spring 2013! This is an exciting opportunity for students wanting to study Chinese politics and developments in a global perspective. The semester-long course, building on three modules, offers students unique insights into the growing interdependence between Chinese and world developments, Chinese domestic politics and society, as well as opportunity to study Chinese language and culture. The course program offers ample opportunities to integrate in a Chinese university environment, with half of the students and teachers coming from Chinese (Fudan) and Nordic universities.
The course runs during the spring semester at Fudan University (Shanghai), and the program includes local excursions and travels to the Chinese countryside and the Chinese capital, Beijing. The full-semester course program consists of three modules: 1) “Chinese Developments in a Globalized World” (joint course with matching number of Chinese and Nordic university students), 2) “Chinese Politics” (primarily for Nordic university students), and 3) “Chinese Culture and Language” (primarily for Nordic university students). The last module includes a language course focused on conversational Chinese for beginners, with more advanced options offered to students who already have some command of Chinese Mandarin.
