Course content

With two of the leading economic powers situated in East Asia and a huge potential for regional conflict as well as cooperation, East Asia will be the focus of future global politics.

This programme is designed to equip students with the knowledge to critically engage with these developments through recognised masters-level training in both Chinese/Japanese/Korean Studies and the social, political, historical and cultural dimensions of international relations of East Asia.

The unique combination of expertise across the regions and across disciplines in Asian studies enables both in-depth and diversified knowledge about the interrelatedness of political, cultural and economic factors shaping international relations in the area and across the globe.
