Wittenberg's East Asian Studies (EAS) program offers a wide range of courses in Chinese and Japanese language, literature, history, political science, religion, anthropology, business, psychology, dance and communication.
Small class sizes allow you to work closely with internationally recognized faculty who will challenge and push you to attain the skills needed to be successful.
Beyond classroom instruction, you'll have numerous ways to develop your interest in East Asia. Language study tables, the Anime Club, Martial Arts Club and the Wittenberg University East Asian Studies Journal are important extracurricular components of our program. Many students also study abroad to further develop their foreign language skills and to experience living and learning in an East Asian country.
You also will have extraordinary opportunities for internships, mentoring and access to professionals in East-Asian-related careers through collaborative initiatives between EAS and the department of business.
