Philosophy:

Becoming another of the world’s superpowers of the 21st century, China plays a significant part in international economy and politics.  As Thailand and China are tightening their relationship, the two countries can enter into various domains of collaboration, ranging from commerce, education to even territorial defense. Success in maintaining such collaboration depends on Thai people’s correct understanding of various aspects of China, for example, its history, administrative system, political climate, and foreign relations policies, in addition to a good command of the Chinese language. Such qualities are instrumental in smooth, unobstructed interaction with Chinese people.

For the above reasons, the School of Sinology has adopted teaching/learning methods designed to prepare its students to be well-rounded in matters pertaining to China, to understand the Chinese way of thinking, and to skillfully put their knowledge into practice. It is expected that the school’s graduates will be able to develop good relationship with Chinese people and succeed in undertaking Chinese-Thai joint activities, at both individual and national levels.

Expected qualities of graduates:

The graduates are expected to possess the following qualities:

  1. Well-roundedness in China-related affairs, an in-depth understanding of the Chinese way of thinking, and a good command of Chinese;
  2. Ability to search for knowledge about different aspects of China, such as its history, administrative system, political climate, and foreign relations policies; and
  3. Ability to analyse and solve problems with integrity and in accord with moral and ethical principles.
