Learn the culture behind
SCIE students will pursue higher education in western countries, and as such will inevitably be influenced by the cultures and values of these countries. Therefore, students should be well-grounded in their native Chinese culture and language, and establish a strong identity within themselves, in order to benefit most from this experience.
This subject comes within the traditional Sociology category, which is different from a pure language or history course. It emphasises traditional Chinese culture, historic events, literary development and ethnic relations.
Each year, SCIE organizes field trip for students, allowing them to have a better understanding of Chinese culture while travelling and visiting historical places such as Dunhuang, Chengdu.
