Asian and African Cultural Studies Certificate


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.
