Since 2006, the Contemporary China Studies Program (CCSP) has offered overseas students not yet proficient in Chinese language the opportunity to study Chinese governance and foreign relations while living in China's capital city. CCSP draws students from all over the world, fostering a unique multidisciplinary and multinational environment in which diverse backgrounds and experiences enhance rigorous academic study.
The two-year master's program provides a comprehensive introduction to the economy, politics, law, society, and foreign policy of contemporary China. In the second year, the program supports students as they conduct independent research on a topic of their choosing. Upon completion of the program, graduates will ear a Master of law degree, as recognized by the Ministry of Education of the People's Republic of China.
The language of instruction and administration for CCSP is ENGLISH.
CCSP resides within the School of International Studies at Renmin University (Renda), China's premier institution of higher learning in the humanities and social sciences.
