Program Description:

The graduate Program in Asian Civilizations provides preparation for doctoral study in a variety of disciplines. It is also of interest to students with nonacademic career plans for whom graduate-level work in an Asian language and culture would be useful. Students in professional programs are encouraged to consider working toward a concurrent degree in Asian civilizations. The Master of Arts in Asian Civilizations requires a minimum of 30 semester hours of approved course work, 24 of which must be taken in residence at The University of Iowa. By the end of the first semester in residence, students propose a plan of study developed in consultation with the adviser and in accordance with guidelines for specializations within the program.
