Module overview

After 30years of breakneck economic development, China is now the 2nd largest economy in the world and is predicted to catch up with the United States within 10 years. Is China's growth sustainable? What has been the impact of economic growth on Chinese society? What are China's foreign policy objectives? This module will introduce you to key aspects of Chinese economy, culture and society and provide opportunities for exploring and analysing contemporary issues including those arising from China's ascendancy as a world power.
