M.A. - Asian Studies
The Research Master's programme in Asian Studies is intended for very talented and motivated students. It is self-evident that a responsible study of this subject is not feasible without thorough knowledge of the regional language and culture. But in addition to this choice of a regional specialisation, the programme is directed explicitly at comparative and thematic study of the entire Asiatic region, past and present, in all its linguistic, cultural, ethnic and historical variety. After completion of the MPhil programme in Asian Studies, students are able to function as junior academic researchers, either in a semi-academic position, or at a university.
