Asia is home to two-thirds of the world's population and some of the most dynamic and fascinating societies on the planet. It’s also an economic powerhouse that is vital to Australia's future prosperity and security.
Whether you aim to work in government, business or as a professional, a familiarity with Asia and knowledge of an Asian language will give you a distinct edge in the job market in the decades to come.
Our multiple award-winning teaching staff teach about the subjects of their research: the cultures, societies and politics of contemporary Asia. We are especially strong in the areas of popular culture, gender, cultural sociology, political history, social movements and language education.
In Asian Studies you also have an opportunity to learn the languages and cultures of China, Japan, Indonesia and Korea, either as a complete beginner or as a more advanced student.
Graduates of the Asian Studies major from The University of Western Australia have excellent employment prospects in Australia and in the rising economies of Asia. Many employers in Australia and Asia – including human rights, education, tourism and media organisations, the Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade, the World Bank, and the United Nations – give priority to the employment of graduates with an Asia-related academic background.
