Chinese Studies, also known as Sinology, focuses on the study of China through Chinese philosophy, culture, history, language and literature, combining primary sources with Western scholarship. For those interested in an area studies degree focusing on perhaps the world's most important single state, language and ethnocultural grouping, this degree is perfect - interest in China is very unlikely to decline in the next decade as China grows richer and more powerful, so we would encourage you to follow your interests and consider a degree in Chinese Studies from a German university!
