Requirements

Certificate in Asian Studies The Committee on Asian Studies offers an interdisciplinary program designed to provide graduate students with a broad and balanced understanding of the basic institutions and problems of Asia through the coordination of educational and research activities at the departmental level in the humanities and social sciences. Both M.A. and Ph.D. candidates in standard departments enrolled in this program receive, upon completion of the requirements listed below, Asian studies certificates in recognition of their special competence in the field.

A Certificate in Asian Studies is awarded to a graduate student concentrating on East Asia or South Asia and Southeast Asia under the following conditions:

    a. satisfactory completion of departmental requirements for a graduate degree in a specific discipline, including a thesis or dissertation on an Asian topic;
    b. 24 credits of course work in Asian studies, including an interdisciplinary seminar, and six credits taken outside the student's own department. The course work is normally applied toward satisfying the student's departmental degree requirements;
    c. demonstration of competence in one Asian language whenever relevant according to standards to be determined by the Committee on Asian Studies. Hindi, Sanskrit, Chinese, Japanese, Arabic, and Persian are available. See the Undergraduate Record for specific lower level courses.

M.A. in East Asian Studies The East Asian faculty of the committee offers the Master of Arts in Asian Studies, which is designed to enable students interested in China and Japan to engage in intensive language and area studies training over a period of two academic years. Students should expect to enter the first academic year of this program with at least one full academic year, or the equivalent, of the appropriate East Asian language, and to take 2l months (i.e., two academic years and the intervening summer), to complete all requirements for the degree. To complete the program, students are required to:

  1. take at least 24 non-language credits at the 500-level or above, of which no more than 18 are taken in a single department. Six credits may come from any school within the University;

  3. complete a master's thesis and undergo an oral defense.

The University also offers a joint M.B.A.- M.A. in East Asian Studies. This is a three-year program and requires admission to the Darden Graduate School of Business Administration and to the Master of Arts Program in East Asian Studies. Students enrolled in this program normally spend the first full academic year in the program taking courses in the Darden School, and do not enroll in East Asian studies courses in the Graduate School of Arts and Sciences until the following summer or fall.

Scholarship Opportunities The East Asia Center, through the East Asian Travel Fund, offers support to students traveling abroad to do research and further language study. The South Asia Center also offers graduate language and area fellowships.
