Chinese culture has its great breadth and depth in the wisdom and experience accumulated in China for thousands of years.
Chinese studies that is established as an academic discipline as a result covers
philosophy, history, language, literature, science, art and other related fields.
In multi-ethnic Malaysia,
Chinese studies for adaptation and survival takes on a significant aspect of research on the Chinese and their culture across ethnicities.
With globalization and the rapid growth of China in its transition,
China's current politics, economics, culture and education are also of research interest internationally.
In the age of complexity and speed in change,
the Centre for Chinese Studies was set up in Universiti Tunku Abdul Rahman
for members who would like to delve into traditional Chinese culture, the local Chinese, and contemporary China.
Besides academic research,
the centre assumes the roles of promoting Chinese culture and arts,
infusing the local and the innovative, and engaging international exchange.
