Columbia University EALAC
The Department of East Asian Languages and Cultures offers two interdisciplinary graduate programs in the literature, culture, history, and languages of East Asia, with particular emphasis on critical methodology and comparative study. One program is a terminal MA degree while the other leads to a PhD. The Department, long a leader in East Asian studies, provides a wide range of courses in the history, literature, religion, culture, and languages of China, Japan, and Korea. The Department's close ties with various East Asian institutions in New York City and abroad provide a stimulating cultural environment.
