Study Abroad Programs: East Asian Studies

East Asian Studies is an interdisciplinary field that focuses on the cultures, history, languages, and societies of East Asia, including China, Japan, and Korea. This field of study encompasses a wide range of topics, from ancient history to contemporary politics, and from language learning to cultural immersion. Programs in East Asian Studies typically offer a rigorous curriculum that includes language study, area studies, and disciplinary courses in fields such as history, literature, anthropology, and political science.

For students interested in studying East Asian Studies abroad, there are numerous options available. Many universities offer semester or year-long programs that allow students to immerse themselves in the language and culture of East Asia. These programs often feature homestays or other forms of cultural immersion, as well as opportunities to study at local universities and engage in fieldwork and research projects. Additionally, many study abroad providers offer specialized programs in East Asian Studies, which may include language study, cultural excursions, and academic coursework. Students interested in East Asian Studies are encouraged to research their options thoroughly and to seek out programs that align with their academic and personal goals.
