The East Asian Studies Program is an umbrella organization for East Asian studies and related departments at Princeton University.


Key facts

Its members are drawn from the cooperating Departments of Anthropology, Art and Archaeology, Comparative Literature, East Asian Studies, Economics, History, Music, Politics, Religion, Sociology, and the Woodrow Wilson School of Public and International Affairs. The East Asian Studies Program also functions to financially support and organize various East Asia-related lectures, conferences, and events at the University. 

Via the East Asian Studies Program at Princeton University, undergraduate students majoring in any other University department (including the sciences) may earn a certificate of proficiency in East Asian Studies (the equivalent of a minor). The certificate provides internationally-minded students with basic competence in an Asian area and enhances their understanding of Western civilization through perspectives gained from the study of the non-Western world. 

The Program also provides funding for undergraduates to study languages in East Asia, and graduate students seeking support for language study and dissertation research and completion. Also important is the Program's support of visiting faculty.
