Chinese Economy and Society

The stormy developments in China in recent years have led to a great interest in China. There is virtually no country, region, sector or specialization in which China does not play a role. The BA program China Studies from the Faculty of Humanities is based on knowledge of Chinese languages and cultures, in which the "linguistic component" plays a major role. The Chinese Economy and Society minor has been set up to cater to students who are generally interested in China and who want to know what Chinese development means for his / her field and career. As an option you can also take a basic Chinese course. The Chinese Economy and Society minor is intended for students from all disciplines who hold a propaedeutic year. The minor ChES is explicitly open to students from different disciplines and faculties with an interest in Chinese economy, society and politics.

Keuzeruimte

Sommige opleidingen hebben enkel een keuzeruimte van 15 studiepunten. In deze ruimte kunnen vakken van een minor gevolgd worden. Er zit een opbouw van niveau in een minor dus je kunt niet zomaar vakken kiezen. Elke minor biedt daarom ook een pakket van 15 studiepunten aan, de helft van de complete minor. Meer informatie hierover vind je in de e-Studiegids.
Op deze manier 15 studiepunten aan keuzeruimte invullen staat echter niet gelijk aan het volgen van een minor en mag ook niet zo genoemd worden.
Het staat je natuurlijk vrij om meer studiepunten te halen dan de verplichte 180 studiepunten die voor een bacheloropleiding staan, dat wil zeggen dat je wel een 30 studiepunten tellende minor kunt volgen als je bereid bent 15 studiepunten meer te halen dan je nodig hebt.
Meer informatie over de keuzeruimte en een persoonlijke invulling hiervan vind je op de pagina over Keuzeruimte

Information

The stormy developments in China in recent years have led to a great interest in China. There is virtually no country, region, sector or specialization in which China does not play a role. The BA program China Studies from the Faculty of Humanities is based on knowledge of Chinese languages and cultures, in which the "linguistic component" plays a major role. The minor Chinese Economy and Society (ChES) has been set up to cater to the student who is generally interested in China and who wants to know what Chinese development means for his / her field and career. As an option you can also take a basic Chinese course. The aim of the minor ChES is first and foremost to provide students with insight into the various facets of the Chinese Economy and Society on the basis of various themes that vary from the transition to a market economy, economic geography, political and social developments, modern Chinese history, the macro-economy, consumerism and international relations and trade. This insight is further combined with an introduction to the expertise and skills from the economy, with the explicit note that no special economic prior knowledge is required for this. The program is broadening for those students who in their main subject study in no way come into contact with courses in the field of China. The program is interdisciplinary because teachers from various disciplines (economics, political science, anthropology, sociology, law, international relations) work together in it, but also because the topics that are discussed are not specifically tied to one discipline.
