The Yenching Academy of Peking University offers a Master’s degree in China Studies. This specially designed, English-taught program aims to push the study of China beyond the boundaries of traditionally defined Humanities and Social Sciences disciplines. It creates space to incorporate the diverse backgrounds and experiences of program participants into the study of ancient, modern, and contemporary China, effectively acting as an incubator for innovative approaches to past, present, and future Chinese transformations. At the core of the program lies its emphasis on interdisciplinarity and the value it assigns to thinking about China’s development from both Chinese and international perspectives.
The Yenching Academy provides a generous postgraduate scholarship that covers tuition fees, round-trip travel between Scholars’ homes and Beijing, accommodations on Peking University’s campus, and living costs. The Academy offers a residential program aimed at creating a community of enthusiastic, globally oriented young innovators in the heart of China’s top university. Enrolled international students and students from Hong Kong, Macao, and Taiwan spend 12 months in residence at the Yenching Academy.
Applications for candidates from Switzerland are open now with a deadline of January 31, 2017 for the 2017-2018 cohort.
