East Asian Studies examines the culture, language and history of East Asian civilizations in an interdisciplinary program offering a comprehensive understanding of the rich culture and emerging global power of China, Japan, Korea, Vietnam and Taiwan. During your personalized course of studies you will gain a sensitivity to diversity and interconnectedness, conceptual analytic skills, research capabilities, and the ability to communicate in either Chinese or Japanese. As an East Asian Studies graduate, you'll be prepared for career opportunities in areas such as civil service, the non-profit sector, government positions and the business world. A degree in East Asian Studies can also be used as a stepping-stone to professional degrees in Law, Medicine, Education, Journalism, Diplomacy, Arts, the Performing Arts, and Graduate Studies. The PBS reports that Asian-related careers will be in high demand in the 21st century.
