East Asian Studies combines language study with work in sociology, history, literature, and political science. Majors graduate from the program with a firm grasp on the culture and history of the region, as well as a command of at least one language. The major is sometimes combined with studies in business, economics, or political science departments. East Asia is becoming a powerful economic force in the world, making East Asian Studies a very compelling major.
