Doctor of Philosophy (PhD)

The PhD in the area of China Studies will be a program designed to deliver expertise in both China studies and a discipline or other field of study.

This doctoral program builds on the China Studies Centre’s Master of China Studies, and includes a period of in-country study (field research, study or placement) in China leading to the writing of a doctoral dissertation.

Candidates must demonstrate good language skills in both Chinese and English, and may be required to enrol in units of language acquisition.

The China Studies Centre will provide supervision and support for candidates for the three years of the PhD candidacy.
