Program Description


The MA in Asian Studies targets graduates interested in deepening their knowledge about China, Korea, Japan and Southeast Asia within a multidisciplinary framework of Asian realities and their historical-cultural reference frameworks. The MA in Asian Studies draws upon national and international teachers and researchers, all with their careers dedicated to study Asia, and all with academic dialogue and cooperation both at individual and institutional levels. The MA in Asian Studies’ teaching staff is able to boost the potential for the internationalization of the programs and its graduates.

The MA in Asian Studies seeks to:

  • Develop the social and cultural competences for interrelating with Asian partners (universities, governments, economic and cultural agents, NGOs, etc.);
  • Strengthen the professional capacities for the translation and interpretation of Asian languages and for obtaining information on Asian societies and cultures across various professional and research fields;
  • Develop critical reading skills and the understanding of the theoretical frameworks surrounding Asian studies as well as acquiring the capacities to develop autonomous and original teaching and research activities on Asian topics.
