Welcome to our EALC website!
Our department offers interdisciplinary degree programs for undergraduate and graduate students in the languages, histories, cultures, literatures, and religions of China, Japan, and Korea. We teach Chinese, Japanese and Korean language courses from elementary to advanced levels and we offer a wide selection of courses that explore the rich histories and the vibrant contemporary societies of East Asia. Whether you are interested in the latest trend in Chinese cinema, Buddhist meditation, The Tale of Genji, or K-pop, you can join us to learn about the fascinating cultures of East Asia and explore your own future at the same time. Our faculty conducts cutting-edge research in the languages, cultures and societies of East Asia, past and present, and supervises students pursuing advanced degrees on a wide range of topics. We cooperate closely with CEAPS, the Japan House, Asian Media and Education Services (AMES) and other centers on campus to support a wide variety of East-Asian-related talks, events, and cultural activities.
