East Asian Studies Concentration

Students in any major may pursue this concentration in order to deepen their understanding of this important region of the world. The program consists of 24 credit hours. Courses taken for Core and major can simultaneously be counted toward the concentration. Study abroad in an East Asian country is encouraged but not required. The concentration consists of courses from at least three disciplines, including at least one year of an East Asian language.

Students may choose from two tracks, one of which emphasizes language while the other provides a broader interdisciplinary approach in the humanities and social sciences. The language track requires three years of study of an East Asian language as available at John Carroll or other universities, plus two additional courses focused on East Asia from two other departments: AH 211, 313, 314; EN 288; HS 180, 279, 280, 381, 382, 452, 453, 456; RL 252, 351, 353, 354; SC 151, 250, 390; or special-topics courses in East Asian studies. The second track requires one year of an East Asian language as available at John Carroll or other universities, an introductory course in East Asian Studies (HS 279, 280; RL 252; or SC 151), and five additional courses from at least three departments: AH 211, 313, 314; CO 390; EN 288; HS 180, 279, 280, 381, 382, 452, 453, 456; RL 252, 351, 352, 353, 354; SC 151, 250, 390; or special-topics courses in East Asian studies. One course containing a significant East Asian component may be substituted for one of the five elective courses at the discretion of the East Asian Studies coordinator: EC 342, 343, 352, 353; EN 285; FN 439; MK 361; MN 361; SC 152.

Coordinator: Dr. Susan Long, Department of Sociology.
