MA/PhD

Our program is designed to prepare students for academic and other professional careers that increasingly demand research and expertise across traditional disciplinary boundaries within the humanities and the social sciences. At this historical juncture, we are especially interested in building bridges between national, regional and transnational studies.

We offer an M.A. Program with two different tracks and a Ph.D. Program for which students can apply either with a B.A. or an M.A. Please use the menu to the left to access many more details about our program, degree requirements, and major areas of study.

All majors include coursework in East Asian cultural studies (involving one or more East Asian countries). For courses associated with each major, see the Course Catalog.
