Chinese studies and history is a balanced course that develops your Chinese language skills and your historical knowledge. The language teaching is intensive but we teach Chinese from scratch, so you don't need previous experience.
You'll spend your third year studying the language intensively at Nanjing University in China. This is a great opportunity to immerse yourself in Chinese culture.
The list of history modules is designed to complement your Chinese studies. They cover various political, social and cultural themes, periods, countries and ways of thinking about the past.
Outside the seminar room, you'll get the chance to work on projects that bring history to life, like our student-run New Histories blog and WikiAmerica. On the History Workshop module you'll work alongside an academic on a research project.
