The East Asian Studies Certificate is open to students from any major. It will provide undergraduates with a broad understanding of East Asia as well as with language skills applicable for a wide variety of professions. The curriculum involves courses from four University colleges and many disciplines, and includes opportunity for study abroad in China at the Ohio Shandong Center in East Asian Studies. It calls for the completion of a two-year sequence of one East Asian language (these credits do not count toward the certificate), 4 hours of a required course, and 28 hours of elective courses, for a total of 32 hours.

Introductory course:

Elective courses— 28 hours

To encourage the widest exposure possible, you will receive credit for no more than two courses in the same discipline (not including the introductory course), with the exception of the upper level language courses, which may total 12 credits.
