CEAS M.A. Program in Contemporary East Asian Studies

The Center for East Asian Studies (CEAS) at The University of Kansas will offer a new M.A. program in Contemporary East Asian Studies, beginning with the 2013-2014 school year. This 12-month interdisciplinary area studies program focused on 20th and 21st century East Asia will provide students with

1. in-depth interdisciplinary knowledge of the modern history, politics, economy, and society of one East Asian country;
2. broad knowledge of modern East Asia; and
3. social science research skills and methods appropriate to international area studies.

A wide range of course options across academic disciplines will enable students to earn expertise in their target country while also enhancing their regional knowledge and global perspectives. With the creation of this program, KU has become one of the few universities in the United States to offer an M.A. program focusing on contemporary East Asia that can be completed in 12 months by students with prior language preparation.

All candidates for the M.A. degree are required to complete 30 semester hours of graduate credit, including an introductory course, a social science research methods course, and a research seminar, at a satisfactory level, and to demonstrate proficiency in an East Asian Language at either the second or third level, depending on the concentration.

There are two concentrations to choose from: 1. Contemporary East Asia 2) Foreign Affairs Studies (FASt): Contemporary East Asia in Global Content.

If you are a Foreign Area Officer interested in our program, please read Information for FAOs.
