APSI administers an innovative interdisciplinary Master's Program in East Asian Studies. The Program offers broad choices and can be individually tailored. It meets the needs of students planning to enter professional careers such as the diplomatic corps, international law, education, and business as well as providing academic enhancement for mid-career professionals in these fields. The Program is also designed to prepare students who want to enter doctoral programs in the social sciences and humanities. The program offers comprehensive coverage of East Asian societies, histories, and cultures, with particular strengths in literature, modern history, comparative history and culture, religious studies, and film, media, and visual studies. Duke's interdepartmental concentrations in Japanese history, East Asian colonialism, and in modern Chinese literature are among the strongest in the US. Duke also shares close ties with East Asian Studies faculty at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill (UNC), and students can receive credit for courses taken at either institution. The regular APSI MA program is an interdisciplinary program for students with a broad interest in East Asia. During the course of the program, students have the opportunity to be trained in a variety of disciplinary methods including history, sociology, literary studies, anthropology and political science. Students are required to take classes across at least two departments of Duke University, so the program is by nature interdisciplinary. Note that although AMES offers a separate CAH track for students with a special interest in literature and cultural studies, students in the regular APSI MA program are free to take classes in AMES, and they may also request AMES faculty to supervise their capstone papers. The regular MA program is suitable for students wishing to proceed to careers in business, government, journalism/media, consulting, etc., or those who wish to proceed to an advanced degree program in any branch of East Asian studies.
