The MPhil Modern Chinese Studies is a two-year master's degree programme offered jointly by the Faculty of Oriental Studies and the Oxford School of Global and Area Studies which combines intensive study of the Chinese language with thorough training in the study of modern China. This course is designed for those who are interested in China. It can be taken either as a terminal degree in preparation for professional work in which knowledge of China and Chinese is an advantage, or in preparation for further research as part of a doctoral degree in either the humanities or social sciences. This course aims to provide a strong grounding in modern Chinese language, both written and spoken, a strong foundation in understanding modern Chinese society and culture, and advanced training in conducting and reporting on independent and original research. Knowing the Chinese language is essential for anyone who wants to understand China and the course is designed to provide this at both elementary and intermediate levels. Students will be allocated to the appropriate level by a placement test on arrival.
