This program offered by Seton Hall University illuminates Asia’s cultures and languages, blending history with contemporary developments. Hailed as one of the pioneers in the nation for more than 50 years, Seton Hall’s Asian Studies program has been recognized for its outstanding faculty and quality programs. We offer three versions of this degree, so wherever you’d like to end up, we can help you get there.
Translated into Chinese, Seton Hall University means “The East-West University.” It’s a fitting name, especially in our Asian Studies program. Our students take courses in Chinese civilization, the history and culture of Japan, and modern and contemporary East Asia. Some also choose to study Chinese (Mandarin) or Japanese. You may pick from three versions of this degree: a traditional M.A., with or without thesis (39 credits), an M.A. with a track in teaching Chinese language and culture (39 credits), or a dual M.A. with the School of Diplomacy and International Relations (60 credits).
