MEAS1000 Minor in East Asian Studies, 25–30 op

Learning outcomes

By taking the Minor in East Asian Studies (MEAS), students will be introduced to and become familiar with the major East Asian (China, Japan, and Korea) societies, politics, and history. Students learn the most important historical, social, and political events and turning points as well as large developments, and they become aware of the topical social and political issues of the East Asian states as well as the whole region.
Completing the Minor in East Asian Studies, students will be capable of carrying out further studies on East Asia or applying their learning in various professions related to East Asia.


Students majoring in Contemporary History who take the East Asia Study Line (A3.5) will take 21 credits to complete the line, that is, all modules except language studies. These students are, however, encouraged to take the whole minor by completing also the required language studies.
The courses marked (MA) are open to students in the Master's Degree Programme in East Asian Studies to be registered as Optional Subject Studies.


Numeric 0-5.

Further information

Registration for the Minor in East Asian Studies is required, and is done by sending an email to Anna Väre (anna.vare@utu.fi) by 24 August 2017. In the mail, give your name, major subject, student number, the language you want to study (Chinese, Japanese or Korean) and your preferred language course level (beginner, lower intermediate etc).
Maximum 25 students are admitted to the Minor Programme. In case the intake quota of 25 is exceeded, preference is given to Contemporary History majors and students in their 2nd year or further.

Those who select Chinese when registering for MEAS become eligible to attend the courses of the Language Centre in the CEAS quota. Admission to Beginner's Japanese I is given on the basis of a pre-selection process and a final exam in Moodle.

It is possible to take individual MEAS courses without registering for the programme.

When you have completed the required courses and credits, please contact the Educational coordinator Anna Väre (anna.vare@utu.fi) to have the MEAS Programme registered.
