About

The East Asian Languages and Cultures major offered at the Occidental College combines a broad interdisciplinary grounding in the languages, cultures and societies of East Asia with a more in-depth focus on a particular issue or disciplinary research method in the areas of art history, history, literature, politics, sociology, or religion.

With faculty from seven departments across the campus and courses from even more majors, East Asian Languages and Cultures from the Occidental College provides an interdisciplinary and transnational approach to studying the societies and cultures of China, Japan and Korea and the region as a whole.
