Modern East Asian Studies (Master of Arts)
|Course content and focus areas||
The departments for cultural studies, economics, law and social sciences of Goethe University have joined their forces to offer an interdisciplinary M.A. program in Modern East Asian Studies (MEAS). In a truly interdisciplinary sense, the biennial M.A. program accommodates both students with a B.A. degree in Asia related cultural studies, and students with a B.A. degree in economics, law, history or social sciences.
In the first two semesters, students will attend beginners’ or advanced language courses in Chinese, Japanese, Korean or Indonesian. Moreover, all students are required to jointly participate in a core program and in a variety of elective courses in which they learn to apply their methodological and theoretical knowledge and their language skills to social, legal and economic problems encountered in contemporary East Asia. In the third semester, the program offers three different tracks to choose from: 1) the Research Track to concentrate on empirical research and to facilitate a subsequent Ph.D. study; 2) the Language Track to refine one’s language skills in the respective Asian country; 3) the Professional Track to reflect and extend the academic knowhow in an Asia-related professional environment via internship. During two years of intensive studies in the MEAS program, students will not only mature to experts on modern Asia, but also develop methodological, theoretical as well as soft skills in interdisciplinary team work. With its structure of three tracks, the MEAS M.A. title qualifies for an academic career as well as a professional career in international enterprises and organizations.
