MIRS: Chinese Studies Specialization

The Masters in International and Regional Studies (MIRS) Chinese studies specialization is designed for students with an interest in gaining a broad, interdisciplinary approach to the study of China. Students are introduced to advanced studies of China from different perspectives and disciplines.

Anchored in the The Lieberthal-Rogel Center for Chinese Studies (LRCCS), the MIRS Chinese studies specialization draws upon LRCCS’s broad, interdisciplinary approach to the study of China. LRCCS provides students, specialists, and the public with expert resources and a deeper understanding of contemporary and historical issues related to China.
