The University of Alberta Department of East Asian Studies is now accepting applications for our MA program. The department is able to offer funding to MA students, even international ones, so if you have students who you feel might be interested, please feel free to forward the following information.
The MA program in East Asian Studies aims at providing graduate students with advanced disciplinary training and a profound understanding of research methods in Asian cultures. This training will prepare graduates of the program for a variety of careers; it will also provide the basis for the pursuit of more advanced degrees. Many of our graduates go on to top PhD programs in Canada and the USA, while others pursue careers in the public or private sectors, working in government service, in business, or with numerous firms and institutions which require knowledge of East Asian cultures and societies. Continue reading
Some of my best students express interest in this program, and some do apply, although I do try to explain to them that the program doesn’t make sense other than as a networking tool. The idea that a one-year MA program that does not require any previous study of China or the Chinese language could possibly offer “cultural immersion” or produce graduates who would be “able to explain complex issues” and “explain China to the world and the world to China” is preposterous, unless they were able to do so before they were admitted.
