Course summary

Programme description

With two of the world’s leading economic powers situated in East Asia, and a huge potential for both regional conflict and cooperation, studying East Asian Relations is as relevant and critical now as it has been at any time since the end of World War II.

Our one-year taught Masters programme will help you critically engage with East Asian relations by providing training in Chinese/Japanese/Korean Studies, facilitating exploration of how social, political, historical, economic and cultural factors have made the region what it is today.

You’ll be part of an international community of learners, each with their own perspective, taking core and option courses that draw on unparalleled staff expertise across the region and across disciplines.

Career opportunities

East Asia is widely perceived to be the focus of future global politics, with tensions between North Korea and the US, for example, dominating headlines worldwide.

Giving you a thorough grasp of historical and contemporary factors, our programme is designed to equip you with the knowledge to critically engage with these developments, whether your background is in area studies, or international relations.

You’ll acquire the tools to analyse and understand the complexities of East Asian relations in a global context, and present your views in a way conducive to careers in, for example, diplomacy, negotiation, international relations and journalism.

You may also choose to continue your research journey by progressing to a doctoral degree.
