Requirements for the M.A. in Contemporary East Asia Concentration

Proficiency in an East Asian language is not required for admission to this program, but proficiency at the second (intermediate) level is required for the degree. Credit earned in introductory and intermediate language courses will not count toward the 30 hours required. If such courses are taken after admission, they will add substantial time to the program. 

Candidates in this concentration are required to complete 30 semester hours of graduate credit, including 3 required core courses and 7 elective courses.

For current students, please see the CEAS MA course planning worksheet
