Program Description

Chinese Politics and Diplomacy (CPD) is a two-year international master program that prepares students with theoretical tool kits, practical knowledge and analytical capacity of Chinese politics and international relations. Taught by established professors and seasoned policy experts with global vision, the program distinguishes itself by its wide array of courses, unique academic atmosphere and first-hand observation of Chinese politics and policies. Students are expected to leave the program with considerable exposure to Chinese state institutions, political culture and diplomatic practices. Upon graduation, they can pursue further training in prestigious academic programs, as well as advance careers in a wide range of public and private institutions around the globe, including national governments, international organizations, transnational corporations,think-tanks and NGOs.

 

Starting from 2005, CPD has established itself as one of the most prestigious English-taught graduate-level programs both at home and aboard. We accept both degree and non-degree students on a competitive basis. Throughout the decade, hundreds of international students have graduated from CPD program, who are now working as diplomats, government officials, private managers and other professionals. Besides, the program also offers a great opportunity for exchange or non-degree students to experience Chinese culture and politics.
