It caters for the special needs of international students with native or near native Chinese language proficiency who are studying in an English language environment. The course is designed to help bridge the gaps between Chinese and Australian education systems and improve students' learning experiences. It aims at providing Chinese-speaking international students with a fully formed, language rich and research rigorous alternative directly relevant to their experiences and futures. It focuses on key social and cultural issues in modern China and examines the influence of traditional society on them. The instructing languages will be in both Chinese and English. By the end of the semester students will be familiar with some of the central concerns of Chinese culture and hopefully possess a different cultural perspective on their own culture and society.
