What is it about? The Chinese History and Culture programme provides students with solid and critical training in China's history and its cultural tradition. Courses are normally taught in Chinese. Students can choose, and mix and match courses on China's imperial dynasties and their institutions, or courses on Chinese philosophy, religions, or other aspects of China's cultural life. Students have the flexibility to build up their own expertise on China, be it on early China, Tang or Song China, or Ming-Qing China, or on Chinese religions, Chinese thought, or Chinese material culture.
