Concentration in Southeast Asian Studies


Return to {$returnto_text} Return to: Interdisciplinary Academic Centers, Institutes, and Courses

Since the center is not a degree-offering unit, all graduate degrees are obtained through the departments, whose requirements must be met. A student earning a graduate degree may, with the consent of the departmental adviser, also take a concentration of courses in Southeast Asian studies. Completion of the concentration will be noted on the student’s transcript.

At the master’s level, the concentration requirements are met by the successful completion of four graduate courses (excluding thesis credit) dealing with Southeast Asia, at least two of which must be offered by departments other than that in which the student is earning a degree; demonstrated competence (equivalent to one year’s course work) in a Southeast Asian language; 3 and the satisfactory completion of a thesis, if required by the department, or a special paper in lieu thereof, on a Southeast Asian topic.

At the doctoral level, the concentration requirements are met by the successful completion of six graduate courses (excluding dissertation credit) dealing with Southeast Asia, at least three of which must be offered by departments other than that in which the student is earning a degree; demonstrated proficiency (equivalent to two years’ course work) in a Southeast Asian language; 3 and the satisfactory completion of a doctoral dissertation on a Southeast Asian topic.

The specific Southeast Asian courses which the student is permitted to take as part of the concentration requirements are selected in consultation with the departmental adviser. The concentration is available to students in all colleges.

All requirements for the concentration in Southeast Asian studies must be completed within a period of six consecutive years.
