In Leiden University’s Research Master’s in Asian Studies, you may focus on a specific region, choosing between China, Japan, Korea, South Asia or Southeast Asia. Alternatively, you may conduct your research with the primary emphasis on a discipline, focusing on such topics as politics, religion, art and material culture, languages, and literature, regionally or cross-regionally.

Visit the website: http://en.mastersinleiden.nl/programmes/asian-studies-research/en/introduction

Course detail

Make use of an inherently comparative Area Studies approach. The programme not only encourages intra-Asian comparisons, but co-operates closely with Middle Eastern Studies (research). This co-operation is institutionalised, for example, through a common introductory course on Area Studies.

Format

Focus in your studies either on a discipline, or on a specific region. Both approaches offer the opportunity to work extensively in primary languages, but do not demand this.

Why choose Leiden?

- Take advantage of the renowned expertise of the Leiden teaching faculty, and explore both vibrant, present-day Asia as well as its historical past.

- Asian Studies scholarship in Leiden has a justly deserved worldwide reputation. Its breadth and depth are not only unparalleled in the Netherlands, but represent the very best of Asia-related research and teaching in Europe and beyond.

Careers

Students who complete the Research MA programme in Asian Studies in the first place are perfectly positioned for further academic study, in particular the pursuit of a PhD. For others, the degree provides Asia expertise in demand for careers in areas including publishing, international trade, public relations, education, development aid, or in government, international organisations and NGOs. Leiden graduates in Asian Studies often find employment in Asia itself.
