East Asia Studies

The East Asia specialization includes study of China, Japan, Korea, and parts of Northeast Asia. In some cases students will also want to research Vietnam, Mongolia or Tibet. The East Asia faculty very strongly encourages sustained study of at least one relevant Asian language. Because of our extensive course offerings, students are able to concentrate upon either modern or traditional East Asia, and to do advanced study in the disciplines of their choice.
