Yenching Academy Fellowship

The Yenching Academy offers a highly customizable Master’s program in China studies. At the core of the program lies its emphasis on interdisciplinarity and the value it assigns to thinking about China; past, present and future – from both Chinese and international perspectives. Scholars are allowed flexibility in the design of their study programs and can choose courses from any of six research areas (Economics and Management, History and Archaeology, Philosophy and Religion, Politics and International Relations, Law and Society, and Literature and Culture), one of which they will choose for their theses. Our interdisciplinary approach encourages dialogue across academic disciplines, and creates an environment conducive to innovative and fruitful exchanges of ideas.
