Course summary

East Asian Studies provides students with in-depth knowledge and understanding of the East Asian region, with a focus on China and Japan, through studying its cultures, histories, societies, economics and politics. Students will gain a critical appreciation of the complex contemporary realities in East Asian countries as well as the changing position of these countries in an ever-changing international context. Students in the programme will spend a year as exchange students in universities in Japan, China, South Korea, Singapore or universities in other countries offering East Asian Studies courses. For the year abroad, students may be able to spend their time in two different countries (one country in the first semester, another in the second). - East Asian Studies is offered as Single Honours. The degree is four years in length. - Courses are taught in English, although the degree is open to students who already have proficiency in one or more East Asian languages.- Students have the option of studying Chinese, Korean or Japanese language, or Chinese or Japanese Studies as a Minor. - Students can tailor their degree to suit their interests and professional ambitions from the second year on, choosing from a wide range of courses on topics including language, contemporary art, literature, religion and media, popular culture, business, anthropology, history, economics and politics.
