The quality and breadth of classes on East Asia makes it very easy to tailor the program to your interests.Christine Swanson

Daniel Silver“I chose the MARSEA program because of my interest in a professional career of engagement with China and the unique opportunity to pursue courses in a variety of disciplines from some of the top professors in the world. This program also affords me the opportunity to develop a broad understanding of the history, people, culture, economy, society, and politics of the greater East-Asian region.” Daniel Silver
