China introduces new rules for administration of interdisciplinary courses
China's Academic Degrees Committee of the State Council has put into effect, on a trial basis, new rules for the setting up and management of inter-disciplines involving university courses and research programs.
The new regulations stipulate that to institute a new interdisciplinary course, there should be an urgent yet stable need for talent with expertise in that discipline.
Besides, institutions of higher education should have a competent teaching team and solid academic foundation to launch interdisciplinary programs, according to the rules.
