Structured Electives in Chinese Studies

What is this Structured Elective about?

Structured Elective in Chinese Studies offers a wide range of modules helping the students gain the understanding of China, in various aspects. If a student successfully completes elective modules amounting to a minimum of 15 credits, which constitute the Structured Elective in Chinese Studies during their degree, their official transcript will state that in addition to their degree they have also been awarded a “Structured Elective in Chinese Studies”.

Why should I take this Structured Elective?

Structured Elective in Chinese Studies aims at the “General Elective” audience within UCD, for students with an interest in Chinese studies, including society, culture, politics, law, economy and doing business in China. Modules are chosen to complement their on-going studies or personal interests. We believe provision of electives within this structured manner, supports the spirit of UCD Horizons allowing students to direct their own journey of academic and personal progress.
