Chinese Studies at the ANU is both broad and deep, covering linguistics, literature (traditional and modern), history, philosophy and religion, gender and cultural studies, politics, economics, sociology and ethnic issues, the Chinese diaspora, environmental and archaeological studies, human rights, film and art history, calligraphy and aesthetics, and a designated series of courses on Taiwan. Across the board, links between the old and the new are emphasized. A Chinese Studies major provides students with a solid foundation upon which to develop both general and specialist interests in Chinese culture, history, society and thought.
The Chinese studies major is designed to complement the Chinese language major, though knowledge of the Chinese language is not required for courses in the Chinese studies major.
Upon completion of a Bachelor degree with a major in Chinese Studies, graduates will be able to:
- Speak and write about theories, factual content and research approaches relevant to Chinese Studies.
- Identify relevant regional and international literature relevant to Chinese Studies.
- Determine the processes through which current knowledge about Chinese Studies has been developed.
