Introduction to the Program

Ohio Wesleyan’s East Asian Studies program is interdisciplinary and holistic. It draws from multiple departments to give you a broad perspective of East Asian cultures. However, you can choose to focus on one particular East Asian country. You can focus your language instruction on Japanese or Chinese. As a major, study abroad will be required, so you will be able to apply your studies in a culturally immersive experience.

Program Features

  • Theory-to-Practice grants are great opportunities for research, travel, or internships in an East Asian country. Students have gone to China and Japan.
  • Several clubs on campus can expand your learning beyond the classroom. Clubs that embrace East Asian cultures include the Chinese Culture Club, Vietnamese Student Association, and SANGAM.
