The Program in East Asian Studies does not itself offer a graduate degree program but the Krieger School of Arts and Sciences offers doctoral programs in a wide range of disciplines that are applicable to East Asian specialists.

Graduate students affiliated with the program are housed in the following departments: history, sociology, anthropology, political science, comparative thought and literature, English, history of science and technology, history of art, and history of medicine (through the Johns Hopkins School of Medicine).

Students receive support and guidance from the interdepartmental Committee on East Asian Studies, comprising faculty members engaged in important new work on China, Japan, and Korea in various disciplines. The committee is made of all regular faculty members, but questions can be directed to the EAS director and associate director. Students also participate in scholarly activities, seminars, and workshops sponsored by the Program in East Asian Studies.

Applicants are admitted, funded, and trained through individual departments—not through the East Asian Studies Program. Applicants should directly apply to their department of interest and submit an application to the graduate school. More information on application process, deadlines, departmental requirements, international students information can be found on the Krieger Graduate Admissions and the Krieger School of Arts & Sciences & Whiting School of Engineering Graduate & Postdoctoral Affairs websites.
