Summary

With two of the world’s leading economic powers situated in East Asia, and a huge potential for both regional conflict and cooperation, studying East Asian Relations is as relevant and critical now as it has been at any time since the end of World War II.

Our one-year taught Masters programme will help you critically engage with East Asian relations by providing training in Chinese/Japanese/Korean Studies, facilitating exploration of how social, political, historical, economic and cultural factors have made the region what it is today.

You’ll be part of an international community of learners, each with their own perspective, taking core and option courses that draw on unparalleled staff expertise across the region and across disciplines.

We’ll give you the tools to analyse and understand the complexities of East Asian relations in a global context, with skills relevant to professional sectors such as diplomacy, international relations, negotiation, and journalism.

You’ll be based in a thriving Asian Studies department, with expertise in Japanese, Chinese and Korean Studies, and a great programme of cultural events, including its own seminar series. We’re also home to The Confucius Institute for Scotland.

You’ll study in a stimulating, interdisciplinary environment at the heart of the University of Edinburgh alongside learners from the Schools of Literatures, Languages and Cultures and Social and Political Science.

Combining core courses with optional courses, our programme is carefully designed to introduce skills and knowledge in a way that is clear, coherent and interconnected, supporting your academic development and research training towards your dissertation.

You will benefit from the resources of a leading cultural capital city, from the University of Edinburgh Library (some two million borrowable volumes) to the National Library of Scotland. A compact, green and historic city, with excellent restaurants, cinemas and theatres, it’s a great place to live and study.
