Taiwan Studies Modules
Over the last two decades SOAS University of London has become the world's leading provider of Taiwan studies teaching courses. We offer the widest range of postgraduate and undergraduate modules on Taiwan of any university in Europe or North America. These include in depth modules on Taiwan's politics, film, society and culture, international relations, and political economy. In addition to the Taiwan centred modules, we offer a class that compares Taiwan's politics and political economy with Korea and Japan. These modules are available to students on a wide range of postgraduate degrees including MA Chinese Studies, MSc Politics of Asia, MA Pacific Asian Studies, MSc International Politics, MA International Studies and Diplomacy, MA Japanese Studies, MA Taiwan Studies, and many more. In addition, the courses are open to intercollegiate Master students from other University of London degrees.
