Department of Asian Languages and Cultures

College of Letters & Science

Welcome to Asian Languages & Cultures

We encourage students to study Asia in a regional and comparative frame while cultivating scholarly capacities in particular aspects of Asian culture.  To that end, we offer multiple degree options at the BA, MA, and Ph.D levels, reflecting departmental research strengths that allow students to approach the study of Asian cultures, languages, media, religions, and critical social issues from a variety of perspectives.  We seek to enhance both teaching and research through collaborations within the department and beyond, with particular emphasis on the development of robust connections with scholars at our peer institutions throughout Asia.
