Department of East Asian Studies
The Department of East Asian Studies is advancing our knowledge of a region representing more than one-third of the world's population. Scholars of China, Japan and Korea offer an inspiring academic environment for students wishing to develop a deeper understanding of the classical and modern traditions of these increasingly influential civilizations. The department's course offerings engage students with the diversity of East Asian cultures, languages, histories and politics, providing them, in a time of globalization, with an excellent springboard to a career where bilingualism, critical analytical skills, and in-depth knowledge of the region are essential. Your gift will help foster world-class teaching and scholarship in East Asian studies.
