The Program

The Master of Social Sciences (Transformation of Chinese Societies) is designed to explore the transformation of cultural practices and social values brought about by state and market. To facilitate the in-depth investigation of these phenomena, the program is divided into two domains. One domain focuses on changing social values and morality; how they are shaped by institutional transformation and how individual citizens adjust themselves within the social structure amid rapid and radical social change. The other domain considers how traditional cultural practices have been preserved, recycled or transformed in a process of commoditization and politicization. It also examines the popularization of consumerist activities and the relationship between culture and consumption.

Program duration: One year full-time/Two-year part-time
Frequency of Intake: One intake per year
Application Period: Starts from October 2015
