Johns Hopkins has a long history of influence in East Asia, and its students and faculty have made enduring contributions to the field of East Asian studies. Majors in East Asian studies engage in intensive language study and work with distinguished faculty on such topics as China in the global economy, nationalism in East Asia, Korean identity in Japan, and women in East Asia.
The East Asian Studies Program offers opportunities for students to pursue a rigorous and exciting interdisciplinary course of study in Baltimore and beyond. Many students choose to study abroad through partner programs in China, Japan, and Korea. Students are welcome to attend our speaker series, view films, and participate in weekly language corners.
Our students can apply for intersession and summer travel grants. We offer a senior thesis honors option, and seminars that bring together research scholars, faculty, graduate students, and undergraduates in a manner that is distinctly Hopkins. Alumni of the program are making their mark around the world in business and finance, academia, law, international development, medicine and public health, engineering, media, public service, and the arts.
