Introduction to Chinese Culture

Academic Year 2019-20

This module aims to offer students a general introduction to Chinese culture to complement their linguistic studies and provide a framework for deeper study of the subject. Students will be given an introduction to the geography of China and its impact on China's development, followed by an outline of Chinese history over the last four millennia, and a discussion of major aspects of philosophy, literature and art.
