The Master courses in East Asian Studies are offered to graduates of Chinese, Japanese and Korean Studies, as well as to graduates of other departments and faculties such as History, Social Sciences, Philosophy, Communication or Fine Arts, who wish to further research the cultural area of the Far East.

The program´s starting point is East Asia´s cultural unity, which appeared as a result of the spreading of Chinese culture, followed by acculturation and strengthened by the dialogue of local traditions in the fields of religion, ethics, philosophy, aesthetics, fine arts, etc., the common ground for the development of which have been Confucian and Buddhist traditions.

Our offer consists in the study of the common cultural pattern of the area through translations and the study of the cultural contacts among the three cultural areas.

We undertake an interdisciplinary approach, which resorts to the anthropological perspective, intellectual history, history of concepts and the theory of translation. This is a brand new approach in the field of East Asian studies, which efficiently uses and adjusts the research methods already tested in Western cultural studies.

The courses will be given by professors from our university as well as Japanese and Korean visiting professors. Scientific conferences with specialists from European universities such as the Université Paris VII, INALCO, Universita Sapienza di Roma, Gent University and University of Trier, included in the Erasmus program, will add value to our Master program.
