Full-time Mandarin Chinese Language Lecturer 2016-2017 at UC San Diego
Chinese studies program
The Chinese Studies Program combines historical understanding with an emphasis on modern and contemporary China. The Department of History has a strong specialization in late imperial and modern China. A full spectrum of courses on the politics, economics, society, and culture of today’s China are offered via other departments at UC San Diego. Another focal point of research interest is visual culture and cultural history in modern and pre-modern China. The interdisciplinary nature of the program (see departmental affiliation of the participating faculty) can accommodate students of a wide range of interests. In addition to our local resources, the University of California Education Abroad Program (EAP) and Opportunities Abroad Program (OAP) are affiliated with various universities and language institutes in China, Taiwan, Hong Kong, and Singapore. This, together with other academic exchange programs with a number of Chinese universities, provides the possibility of a junior year abroad, to take both Mandarin Chinese courses and non-language courses dealing with various aspects of Chinese studies. Such courses are subject to final approval by the program director of an Undergraduate Student Petition upon completion of the course(s). Please note that at least six of the upper-division courses for the major must be taken at UC San Diego.
Chinese Studies is an interdisciplinary program that allows the student interested in China to utilize the university’s offerings in various departments to build a major leading to a bachelor’s degree. In addition to coordinating courses in the various departments, the Program in Chinese Studies offers courses directly under its own auspices to round out the available offerings.
