Chinese Economy and Society
N.B. Minor description is up-to-date / course descriptions are subject to change
The stormy developments in China in recent years have led to a great interest in China. There is virtually no country, region, sector or specialization in which China does not play a role. The BA program China Studies from the Faculty of Humanities is based on knowledge of Chinese languages and cultures, in which the "linguistic component" plays a major role. The Chinese Economy and Society minor has been set up to cater to students who are generally interested in China and who want to know what Chinese development means for his / her field and career. As an option you can also take a basic Chinese course.
The Chinese Economy and Society minor is explicitly open to students from various disciplines and faculties with an interest in Chinese economy, society and politics.
The aim of the ChES minor is primarily to provide students with insight into the various facets of the Chinese economy and society on the basis of various themes that vary from the transition to a market economy, economic geography, political and social developments, modern Chinese history, macroeconomics, consumerism, and international relations and trade.
The program is particularly broadening for those students who do not in any way come into contact with study components in the field of China during their main study.
The program is interdisciplinary because teachers from various disciplines (economics, political science, anthropology, sociology, law, international relations) work together in it, but also because the subjects that are discussed are not specifically tied to one discipline.
