St. John's University New York Campuses Closed

Out of concern for the safety of our students, faculty, and administration and in consideration of the widespread regional snow removal efforts which are expected, all St. John's University's New York campuses will be closed Monday, January 26, and Tuesday, January 27, 2015, and all classes will be canceled.

This closing applies to St. John's Queens, Staten Island, Manhattan, and Oakdale campuses.

15 Credits
St. John's College of Liberal Arts and Sciences
Queens Campus


The program in East Asian Studies seeks to provide a comprehensive and critical study of the historical, social, economic, political and cultural developments of the Asian world, both as a whole and as individual societies. To attain these ends, language courses or linguistic studies in Chinese and Japanese are provided. The program also seeks to provide intensive knowledge of the field and experience in the critical use of sources and in the presentation of research.

Advanced Certificate Program
Along with the increasing importance of Asia, there is a corresponding increase of job demand in this area. To meet this need, the Institute also offers a 15-credit Certificate program in East Asian Cultural Studies.
