Department of East Asian Studies

Language, culture, history

At EAS, we believe that the first step towards gaining knowledge of the history, literature, philosophy, or film of any culture begins with a deep learning of languages. Our department offers hands-on language classes, survey courses on Korea, China, and Japan, and seminars about media, gender, religion, and more.

Undergraduate programs

Major, minor, honours, and joint honours concentrations in East Asian culture, language, and history

Graduate programs

Our MA and PhD programs allow graduate students to specialize in an area of study of their interest
