What can you learn from it?
The opportunity to learn about other cultures and languages is the best of both worlds. Being an East Asian studies major gives us the opportunity to study another language, study abroad, and meet wonderful people.
The most common questions East Asian Studies majors get are, "What will you do after graduation?" or "Will you be able to find a job"? The East Asian Studies Department requires the study of at least one Asian language and it is possible to combine this language study with translation. The combination of both skills is very marketable in this global world. The employment opportunities are vast, including both the private and public sector.
