The impactof East Asian economic development has been keenly felt in recent decades and the region has a major impacton world affairs. The legacy of East Asian history, religious and social values, literatures, etc., is a major factor incurrent affairs in the region, and this legacy will continue to shape our global future.The EALC program is devoted to the study of East Asian cultures. The program introduces students to EastAsian cultures and societies through two components: a) the study of East Asian languages (Chinese—Mandarinand Classical, Korean and Japanese), and b) the study of East Asian cultures through a multi-disciplinaryapproach (Religious & Culture, History, Literature, Cinema, Economics, International Development Studies,Politics). A unique feature of the program is its focus on the intellectual legacy of East Asian cultures, introducedthrough the study of texts and ideas in the historical and cultural contexts that shaped them. Just as East Asianeconomies are having a global impact beyond the East Asian region, intellectual beliefs and cultural habits willchallenge hitherto global presuppositions regarding accepted practices and habits of thought.The EALC program is administered through the Department of Religion & Culture.This program leads to a Bachelor of Arts (3-year or 4-year degree).SAMPLE CAREERSStudents who are interested in careers related to East Asia in fields such as education, government, journalism,economics, and business benefit greatly from courses in East Asian Languages & Cultures.SAMPLE FIRST YEARNOTE: This sample first year is representative of the courses you may take.
