About

The M.A. program in Asian Studies from the University of California, Santa Barbara is dealing with Asia and training in an East Asian language that supports the student’s research area.

Overview

Program Details

The Asian Studies from the University of California, Santa Barbara program with an emphasis in East Asian Languages and Cultural Studies provides a course of study with a geographic focus on East Asia and an interdisciplinary approach concentrating on the humanities. It is assumed that most students will concentrate either upon China or Japan, but that they will also acquire a broad understanding of East Asia. This degree stresses advanced language training and coursework that concentrates on such fields as history, literature, performing arts, religious studies, and anthropology.

For students who will go into careers in business, journalism, government or other private or publicly-oriented research, either track is possible. Students indicate on their application the plan they intend to pursue. Students are expected to complete the M.A. in EALCS in two years.
