About

One of four interdisciplinary majors offered within the Asian Studies Program, the Bachelor in East Asian Studies from Mount Holyoke College allows students to study the diversity of Asia in a comparative framework. Complementing course work at Mount Holyoke are extracurricular activities and study abroad programs that broaden and deepen students’ understanding of Asia.

Overview

The Bachelor in East Asian Studies from Mount Holyoke College allows students to explore the rich and extremely diverse cultures of Asia, home to some 60 percent of humanity. Students may select from three regionally focused majors: East Asian Studies, South Asian Studies, and Middle Eastern Studies. Or they may select a fourth major, Asian Studies (Transregional), which allows them to study the diversity of Asia in a comparative framework. All four majors require an interdisciplinary course of study, including the humanities and social sciences. Achieving language proficiency is an important goal of each major. Courses in Arabic, Chinese, Hebrew, Japanese, and Korean are currently offered at Mount Holyoke, and many other Asian languages are offered through the Five College Center for the Study of World Languages. A wide array of extracurricular activities, including weekly language tables, films, and festivals, complements coursework. 

Most majors continue their exploration of Asia through study abroad programs in: 

  • China
  • India
  • Japan
  • Jordan
  •  Korea
  • Oman
  • and many other countries.

Language study is the core component of the major. We offer four levels of instruction in Chinese, three in Japanese, up to three in Arabic, up to two in Korean, and a basic course in Sanskrit. Our students are expected to incorporate the humanities and the social sciences fully into their studies with classes at Mount Holyoke and the other colleges in the Five College Consortium.
