Overview

Asian countries are very different from each other. 

The Arts - Asian Studies (Hons) course from  University College Cork  focuses on contemporary Asia, beginning with an overview of the entire region, including Asian diasporas worldwide. In subsequent years you will choose modules from a variety of disciplines focusing on Asia , allowing you to study particular countries or regions in more depth, and (optionally) to study one or more Asian language.

Study abroad with UCC’s partner universities in Asia is also encouraged. 

Career Opportunities

As Asia plays an ever more important role in the world, the number of domestic and international companies and institutions that are doing business, or working with, Asia is increasing. All of these organisations are increasingly recruiting graduates with good Asian language skills and an in-depth understanding of Asia, its peoples, politics, business, culture and society. Examples of existing and future employers and careers include:

  • governmental agencies and departments, including trade, import/export organisations such as Enterprise Ireland and IDA Ireland
  • translation/ interpreting agencies
  • diplomatic services
  • multinational companies across every sector, particularly pharmaceuticals
  • Chinese, Japanese, and Korean acquired/owned companies located in Ireland and the rest of the EU

Graduates of Asian Studies often go on to careers in the Department of Foreign Affairs, multi-national companies based in Ireland or other EU countries, as well as a variety of careers in Asia. Students with a background in Asian Studies also find it easier to differentiate themselves from other candidates on the job market. The degree year in Asia, which most students take up, equips them with a wide array of cross-cultural and communication skills easily marketable in a wide range of job seeking environments. It also sets them apart in demonstrating a capacity for tolerance and resilience.

Many of today’s students will be pursuing careers either based in Asia or involving significant contact with Asian colleagues and contacts in Ireland, Europe or further afield. With Asian Studies as part of your degree, you will feel confident in dealing with many aspects of Asia, whether in business, education, politics or development. Asian Studies will also give you a unique perspective on your own culture, making you more self-aware and culturally sensitive; these are increasingly valuable attributes in a globalising world.
