About

The master's programme in East Asian Economy and Society (EcoS) is a multidisciplinary programme at the University of Vienna dealing with contemporary societal, political and economic aspects of the East Asian region as a whole.

Overview

It is offered at the Department of East Asian Studies of the University of Vienna in English language.

Learning outcomes

  • Historical and cultural tradition, customs, and values limit the number of actually available options and influence choices in East Asian societies just as anywhere else. It is therefore no coincidence that our programme is based at an area studies department.
  • The objective of the East Asian Economy and Society programme at University of Vienna is to train experts in social science methods who apply their methodological skills to the East Asian region using a multidisciplinary approach. Accordingly, emphasis is put on transnational and regional issues and on comparative analyses.
