    BNU Master of Public Management in English

    Program Name: Contemporary Development of China School of Social Development and Public Policy

    INTRODUCTION In some developing nations, poverty, stagnation, poor governance and similar issues

    have constantly made their development goals unattainable. While the study and

    research of these issues have gained prominence worldwide in the last decades, most

    attention has been given to the means of achieving economic growth while

    overlooking the means to achieve social development. However, many social

    correlates of economic development lack of a social safety net, missing care systems

    for the highly vulnerable, and inadequacies in the development of education and

    public health have plagued many developing economies today and will further delay

    the development of other late developers in the future.

    The Masters Program in Contemporary Development of China aims to locate the

    processes and policy framework of social development firmly within evidence-based

    theory and practice. Conducted by the School of Social Development and Public

    Policy and supported by the International Poverty Reduction Center in China, it seeks

    to contextualize and analyze the processes that have shaped underdevelopment in

    developing countries, specifically in China, and the many responses to them. The

    program offers a grounded and multi-disciplinary approach to issues of social

    development in global, national and local contexts for students interested in pursuing

    a career in government bodies, development agencies, research institutions, and

    non-governmental organizations. At the end of the program, students should have a

    deep understanding of Chinas development processes and their implications, and how

    international thinking and perspectives on development have impacted upon different

    local sites of development. Students should have gained critical skills in analyzing

    development policy and undertaking development research.

    The program adopts an interdisciplinary approach to development studies, combining

    class lectures with field visits and internships. In particular, the program focuses on

    the formation and reform of specific development policies in the fields of social

    welfare, poverty reduction, migration, gender, public health, risk and emergency

    management, sustainable development, etc. The program is taught in English by top

    Chinese and international scholars and practitioners in relevant fields.

    The program is prepared both for well-trained undergraduate students majoring in any

    subjects of social sciences and for those with professional work experience in

    development fields. 20-25 students are admitted every year.

    ENTRY REQUIREMENTS Bachelors Degree in a social science discipline, experience in development-related
