Chinese Studies has emerged as a major academic discipline in today's world. India and China both have a long history of cultural association as important ancient civilizations of the world. The interaction of both civilizations can be traced back to the level of people through commerce of silk route to the introduction of Buddhism from India and even much before that. As neighbours they have much in common in terms of values and world-views. Of late, China has emerged as a major economic and defence power and India has close trade associations with China. There is a felt need to have experts on China who can help relations between both countries and serve the need of society at large. The students who join the course will find job opportunities in a large number of fields from teaching to corporate management.
