East Asian Studies-Approved Courses

Course availability and offerings vary by semester and year. For complete and up-to-date listings of EAS-approved courses, check the class schedule published by the Registrar’s Office. Course descriptions can be found in the department sections of the University Bulletin. Students may petition for relevant courses taken during East Asian study abroad/exchange to count toward the EAS major. Courses in any discipline with significant East Asian content may be counted toward the EAS major, with permission.

Special Study Programs

Each year, EAS sponsors a special interdisciplinary study program with a study tour to East Asia. Alternating programs include Japanese Popular Culture in Japan, and China in Transition. These programs typically carry 3-6 credits at the 300-level and are cross-listed in the departments of participating faculty.
