East Asian Languages and Cultural Studies Graduate Degree Program

Description

The Department of East Asian Languages and Cultural Studies is dedicated to the study of the civilizations of China, Japan, and Korea in all their richness and diversity. Study involves not only East Asia's recent and increasingly vital role on the world scene, but also an examination of the complex and profound features of its long history. The focus is on the humanistic traditions, with particular emphasis on literature, history, religion, society, and cultural studies. The program stresses advanced language training as the foundation for research on East Asian cultures. Coursework concentrates on history, literature, religious studies, anthropology, and applied linguistics.
