The East Asian Studies’ UNDERGRADUATE Program @ UCSB

The department offers Bachelor of Arts degrees in three areas:
Asian Studies, Chinese
, and Japanese.

All majors include coursework in East Asian cultural studies (involving one or more East Asian countries). Following is a brief description of each major. For courses associated with each major, see the Catalog.

Alumni of our East Asian Languages majors have gone on to pursue successful careers in fields as diverse as banking, diplomacy, international business, law, public service, research, teaching and the arts.
