University of Leeds: East Asian Cultures and Societies (Language Pathway)
|Institution||University of Leeds|
|Department||School of Languages, Cultures and Societies|
This interdisciplinary programme will provide you with in-depth knowledge of the politics, economies and societies of East Asia as well as allowing you to learn, or develop your knowledge of, an East Asian language.
Taught by leading researchers, you’ll apply academic analysis to your experience of the region, or convert past training in another academic discipline to apply it to the Asian context. You’ll also learn Chinese, Japanese or Thai at a level appropriate for you.
A wide range of optional modules will give you the chance to focus on topics such as business practices, the role of China or Japan in international development or the complex politics of the Asia Pacific.
Whether you’re entering a professional career and want to gain regional expertise, want to build on your experience of living and working in an Asian context or you’re preparing for further research, you’ll gain an insight into a complex and fascinating part of the world alongside valuable language skills.
By choosing to study East Asian Studies at Leeds you will be joining a leading centre for research in the region, with over 50 years of history. In addition to the academic strengths that have accrued over this time, we have developed an extensive and active international network of alumni. Leeds is also home to substantial specialist library collections.
