MA MEAS – our offer


The MA program in Modern East Asian Studies develops three sets of core skills:

  1. It deepens students’ existing methodological skills, applying them to the analysis of the East Asian context
  2. It increases their regional, discipline-based and interdisciplinary knowledge of East Asia
  3. It builds skills in one of three East Asian languages (Chinese, Japanese or Korean)

The MA MEAS is an English-taught degree program on contemporary East Asia for graduates with a BA in East Asian regional studies and outstanding knowledge of an East Asian language. Depending on an applicant’s prior education and training (e.g. a BA degree with less than 240 ECTS credits), conditional admission may be granted requiring up to 30 ECTS credits in additional courses.

The MEAS program aims to train students in the theoretical and problem-centered analysis of East Asian societies, politics and economies.

The program’s objective is to deepen and enrich students’ skills in assessing contemporary change, the challenges facing the East Asian region and the implications of such developments for Europe, doing so on the basis of strong language skills (in Chinese, Japanese or Korean) and a sound knowledge of discipline-based methods and theories.
