Why study Chinese Studies at Heidelberg University?
- individual placement according to your language proficiency (Vorkurs) and intensive studying in small groups on all levels (Propädeutikum, Sprachkurse wie Übersetzen und Dolmetschen, Theaterspiel etc.), as well as a large number of scholarships for stays in the PRC (Shanghai, Beijing, Tianjin, Nanjing, Hong Kong) and Taiwan. After finishing your Bachelor's degree you will have a language proficiency equivalent to HSK 6 and TOFCL 5. You will be trained in both simplified and traditional Chinese Characters, which prepares you for a career in a wide variety of professions.
- all-round, intensive and individual support for everyone from BA- to (post-) Ph.D. students: 5 professorships focusing on classical and modern chinese culture (Prof. Giele & Prof. Mittler), history and intellectual history (Prof. Müller-Saini & Prof. Kurtz), as well as politics, economy and society (Jun. Prof. Senz).
- a concentrated study of China, not isolated but in its interactions with East Asia (BA Ostasienwissenschaften mit Schwerpunkt Sinologie, Taiwan Lecture Series) and in a global context (Exzellenzcluster "Asien und Europa" im Globalen Kontext).
