Why choose East Asian studies at North Central College?
You’ll develop the knowledge and language you’ll need to work in East Asian countries like China and Japan as you explore the cultural realities that shape these societies to deepen your understanding of them. An independent review recently described North Central’s East Asian studies major as “impressive,” noting its strong curriculum, committed faculty, well-established language programs and wide range of study abroad options.
You may also:
- Network with faculty and alumni, meet guest speakers, and plan social outings with the Japan Club, Asian Student Konnection, and International Club.
- Take advantage of North Central’s extensive library resources on East Asia.
- Enjoy easy access to cultural destinations like Chicago’s Chinatown.
- Participate in the College’s unique combined China/Japan study abroad program during your sophomore year, then pursue traditional study abroad programs in Japan, Taiwan, Korea or China during your junior or senior year.
