The Master programme in Asian Studies is an interdisciplinary master programme focusing on political, economic, social, and cultural issues in Asia. The interdisciplinary character of the programme, the focus on contemporary Asia, and the possibility to conduct fieldwork in Asia, make the master programme in Lund unique in Europe. It is the only English language programme of its kind in the Nordic countries. The programme benefits from its diverse and multicultural student body and from the international body of researchers and teachers at the Centre for East and South-East Asia and at other departments in Lund University. The programme is aimed at students who after their undergraduate studies want to gain area expertise on contemporary Asian societies. It provides students with advanced knowledge about contemporary issues in Asia with the objective that they will acquire the background knowledge and concrete skills necessary to understand, assess and analyse social, economic and political developments in the region. The students choose one of the two tracks of the programme: East and South-East Asian studies or South Asian studies.
