The project “Religious Studies Programme Innovation at Masaryk University with Special Regards to the Culture of China and Japan began in June 2009 at the Institute of Religious Studies PhF MU.  The main objective of the project is the innovation of existing courses and the preparation and establishment of new courses; this includes the development of new study materials that deal with religious concepts in the broader cultural context of China and Japan, and the teaching of both their languages (classical Chinese, modern Chinese and Japanese).

The project at the Institute of Religious Studies at Masaryk University in Brno, has been designed in collaboration with the Department of Asian Studies at Palacký University in Olomouc, where some of the courses are also taking place.  This partnership also shares the development of study materials for the following language courses: Chinese for Beginners I, II (publication of Modern Chinese for the non-Sinologist downloadable in pdf format + recording in mp3) and Chinese – Text Reading I, II (link to Chinese text reading app is available here).

The project is co-financed by the European Social Fund and by the state budget of Czech Republic, under the Education for Competitiveness Operational Programme.
