The Department of Asian & Middle Eastern Studies runs an M.A. program in Critical Asian Humanities (CAH), which:
- provides training in the critical analyses of written, visual, and performance cultures of East Asia;
- integrates approaches and methodologies from literary studies, film studies, and cultural studies; and
- provides students with the skills needed to pursue either a doctoral or professional degree in a related area, or a career in a field relating to East Asian culture and society.
Our faculty expertise is particularly strong in the early modern, modern, and contemporary periods, and our research interests coalesce around the three broad areas of: 1) Global China; 2) Japanese Empire Studies; and 3) Borderlands Korea.
