East Asian Area Studies Graduate Certificate


Return to {$returnto_text} Return to: Programs, Minors and Certificates

Students interested in pursuing the East Asian Area Studies Graduate Certificate must be enrolled in an advanced degree program in the Graduate School or in a professional school at the university. While preparing for an MA, PhD or other graduate degree, they may earn a certificate in East Asian Studies, which certifies special area competence beyond discipline requirements.

To fulfill the certificate requirements, the student must take four graduate-credit courses in East Asian studies in any department. The student will also be given an oral examination on three research papers and on relevant graduate course work.

Basic East Asian history and at least two years of study or the equivalent of an East Asian language are required. The student makes the basic decisions on the program to be followed in consultation with a three-member interdisciplinary committee approved by the director of the East Asian Studies Center.

For further information, interested students can email the East Asian Studies Center at easc@usc.edu.
