The Postgraduate Diploma in Chinese Studies aims to provide students who already have a background in Chinese language and culture at undergraduate level with an opportunity to specialise in the area of cultural and literary analysis with particular emphasis on the conflict and communication within the Sinosphere (mainland China, Taiwan, Hong Kong and Macau) and between China and the West. The programme introduces students to academic research, new ideas and theoretical approaches. It aims to equip students with academic, analytical, creative, reflective and presentation skills in order to foster interest and involvement in the field of Chinese languages, literatures and cultures. It also aims to enhance students’ knowledge and understanding of important concepts of Chinese languages, literatures, cultures and societies, in particular with regard to mainland China.

The structure of the Postgraduate Diploma (Level 9) in Chinese Studies is very similar to the MA in Chinese Studies. However, it is awarded after completing 60 credits of taught modules, whereas the MA is awarded after completing 90 credits of taught modules and the MA thesis (30 credits).

Course Duration: 1 year Full-time

 The programme can deliver much-needed specialisms (and ultimately specialists) in Chinese language, culture, history and society. It was designed for competent students with a BA in Chinese Studies who want to pursue a professional career in the field of Chinese-EU (and Irish) relations in political, economic, business, diplomatic, pedagogical, historical, cultural and related fields. The Postgraduate Diploma in Chinese Studies equips students for a number of career paths. These include: teaching at various levels, school management, business, politics, publishing, materials’ development, translation, adult education and support, further study at MA, MLitt or PhD level.
