The Future of Chinese Studies

Dr. Ching Thing Ho, Senior Lecturer, Department of Chinese Studies, Universiti Malaya

29-Aug-14 15:00

The Future of Chinese Studies

Universiti Malaya is expected to merge its 12 faculties, two academies and three centres into six faculties in order to cut operating expenditure effective September this year. One of the department affected by this restructuring is the Department of Chinese Studies, the first of its kind in Malaysia, which will lose its departmental status. We ask Dr. Ching Thing Ho, a senior lecturer within the Department of Chinese Studies what are the implications of this merger going forward.
