What is the MA of Contemporary Chinese studies?

The Master of Contemporary Chinese Studies (MCCS) is a key measure by Renmin University of China (RUC) to actively support the Belt and Road Initiative (BRI) in education. Following several years of preparation, the programme leverages RUC’s educational platform, international operational experience and high-level think-tank resources to train future elite leaders for countries along the BRI that have a passion for Chinese culture, profoundly understand the path, model and experience of China’s development.

The two-year programme is full-time and takes place in Suzhou city, Jiangsu Province, China. It is taught in English, with Chinese language skills reinforced throughout. Graduates will be awarded the RUC Diploma in Postgraduate Studies, and those with a sufficient level of academic achievement will also receive the degree of Master of Laws (LLM).
