Program Description:

The graduate program in East Asian Languages and Cultures at the University of Illinois reflects the Department's conviction that an understanding of East Asia must build on a broad and deep proficiency in both the languages of the region and in the theoretical and methodological approaches that inform advanced teaching and research of its cultures. Both the Master's and Doctoral programs embody that conviction in concept and design. Graduate students in the Department are encouraged to develop breadth of vision in their approach to East Asia, spanning historical periods, academic disciplines, and geographical boundaries, testing theories and methods and criticallyassessing their usefulness in understanding the cultures of East Asia.
