About East Asian Studies

About East Asian Studies

Heirs to ancient cultures and traditions that are rich and complex, East Asian societies are among the most dynamic and rapidly developing in the world today and are having an increasing impact on the global scene, economically, politically, and culturally. The study of the languages and cultures of East Asia, whether at the Major or Minor concentration or Honours level, offers the student an intellectually challenging and personally stimulating educational experience. While offering a different perspective on the human condition, East Asian Studies provides excellent preparation for a future career in the professions, international business management, education, law, journalism and communications, in addition to the necessary training for advanced study at the graduate level.

For complementary courses in the East Asian field, refer to the Departmental listing and the list of courses offered by other departments and in other faculties.
