The East Asian region constitutes one of the most dynamic and intellectually rich regions in the world. The impact of East Asian economic development has been keenly felt in recent decades and the region has a major impact on world affairs. The legacy of East Asian history, religious and social values, literatures, etc., is a major factor in current affairs in the region, and this legacy will continue to shape our global future.
The EALC program is devoted to the study of East Asian societies through two components:
- the study of languages (Chinese—Mandarin and Classical, Korean and Japanese), and
- the study of cultures through a multi-disciplinary approach (Religion & Culture, History, Literature, Cinema, Economics, International Development Studies, Politics).
The EALC program is administered through the Department of Religion & Culture.
Students who are interested in careers related to East Asia in fields such as education, government, journalism, economics, and business benefit greatly from courses in East Asian Languages & Cultures.
