Asian Studies (MA) - Master of Arts in Asian Studies
||Faculty of Arts
|Field of Study:
||UBC's Asian Studies Department is the flagship Asian Studies department in Canada and is widely acknowledged as one of the finest in North America.
In many ways, UBC Asian Studies is a representative department within the Faculty of Arts. It has over 20 regular faculty, as well as an exceptionally well-qualified pool of instructors and sessional instructors.
In other ways, the program is in a league of its own. It has grown since its inception, but this growth became explosive during the 1980s and 1990s, reflecting the demographic shifts of Greater Vancouver. Where most of its counterparts at leading universities might offer instruction in Chinese, Japanese, and perhaps Korean, UBC Asian Studies adds Hindi, Urdu, Sanskrit, Punjabi, and Indonesian to the list. We have by far the largest (and in terms of issues related to heritage language learning, the most complex) programs in Chinese and Japanese language in North America, with thousands of registrations between just these two.
