Thesis Master's Degree in East Asian Languages & Cultures
The Department of East Asian Languages and Cultures at the University of Kansas is the only department in Kansas offering a regular program of instruction in the languages, literatures, and cultures of East Asia. Students in the Master's Degree program in EALC study under close supervision with nationally known scholars of Chinese, Japanese, and Korean. The graduate program trains students who will devote themselves to becoming effective links between the Far East and the United States.
Students concentrate in Chinese, Japanese, or East Asian Cultures, usually entering the program with at least two years of college-level language. The program typically takes two years to complete, including the defense of a required Master's thesis.
