Chinese Politics in a Globalized World 2014 and 2015
Our Chinese Politics in a Globalized World program is already becoming a tradition, and after a first successful run in spring 2012, we are at it again in spring 2013! This is an exciting opportunity for students wanting to study Chinese politics and developments in a global perspective. The semester-long program, building on three course 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 program 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.
