Binghamton University announces MA Degree in Asian & Asian-American Studies
Binghamton University proudly announces the launching of our new MASTER OF ARTS DEGREE IN ASIAN & ASIAN AMERICAN STUDIES
The Master of Arts degree offered by the Department of Asian & Asian American Studies (DAAAS) is the first such program in the State University of New York system. The purpose of the DAAAS MA is to enhance intercultural understanding, promote rigorous scholarly study of Asian societies, cultures, histories, languages, and migrations, and prepare students to engage with the increasing interdependence of Asia, North America and the world.
The MA offers students the opportunity to choose from six fields of study: Asian American and Diaspora Studies; Global Asia; Korean Studies; Japanese Studies; Chinese Studies; and South Asian Studies (currently in development). Each provides an ideal course of study for students wishing to gain a thorough and multidisciplinary understanding of that particular field. Faculty will mentor students using a variety of multidisciplinary and comparative cross-national perspectives, intellectual frameworks, dialogues, and research. Graduates of the DAAAS MA will be well-positioned to further specialize in their field of study, or pursue careers in areas such as education, business, government, public policy, arts and culture, and NGOs.
