The Department of East Asian Studies at Princeton University invites you to explore the culture, history, societies, politics, and languages of East Asia (China, Japan, and Korea). A total of 51 full-time professors and language lecturers offer students, both at the undergraduate and graduate levels, the opportunity to study with preeminent scholars and to do research in our world-renowned East Asian Library - home to the Gest rare books collection.
EAS undergraduate courses provide students with a wide range of courses on both the classical traditions and the current world of China, Japan, and Korea.
In the summers, EAS faculty members have been offering a series of Global Seminars in China, Japan, Korea, and Vietnam.
Taking EAS language courses can lead students to participate in international programs, such as summer language courses through Princeton in Beijing, Princeton in Ishikawa (Japan), and Princeton in Korea amongst others. Undergraduate students may obtain the A.B. degree in East Asian Studies; earn a departmental Language and Culture Certificate in Chinese, Japanese, or Korean; or earn an EAS Program Certificate in East Asian Studies.
At the graduate level, students focus their doctoral training on Chinese, Japanese, and Korean literature and history, the traditional strengths of the East Asian Studies Department, with many new offerings on contemporary East Asia.
