Asian Studies

Course coordinator

Chinese languages, with more than 1.3 billion speakers, represent the world’s largest linguistic community, while Japanese is the language of one of the world’s largest economies. Besides Chinese and Japanese language courses at all levels, this program also features topics in Asian culture, literature, history, religion, philosophy, anthropology, politics, and development. It is designed to give students a comprehensive understanding of Asia’s multi-faceted role in the contemporary world and of its historical and cultural transformations. Students are encouraged to participate in summer programs in China and Japan as well as to engage in volunteer opportunities offered through the Centre for Global and Community Engagement of the University of Ottawa.
