About the Program
The East Asian Languages and Cultures program at Rutgers University offers a wide and coherent curriculum including the following humanities disciplines: literature, visual culture, history, religion, anthropology, language and linguistics. Rutgers has long been a national leader in the humanities, ranked as #9 by Times Higher Education (U.K.) in 2012.
Centered at the New Brunswick campus of Rutgers University, our graduate program draws on the strengths of a distinguished faculty with nearly twenty members working on various aspects of East Asian studies. Our faculty members work closely with students and tailor their mentoring to each student’s intellectual and professional needs. Our balanced and flexible curriculum encourages students to shape their own programs while acquiring a comprehensive knowledge of an East Asian civilization. In addition, students may take courses at Princeton University through our graduate school consortium.
Rutgers offers extensive resources to support graduate research. Rutgers is a member of the Association of American Universities—the nationwide consortium of leading research universities—as well as the prestigious Committee on Institutional Cooperation, whose membership includes all Big Ten institutions and the University of Chicago. Research on East Asian studies at Rutgers is supported by the East Asian Library, which has extensive collections and resources for Chinese, Japanese and Korean studies.
