Administered through the East Asia Center, the 4+1 B.A./M.A. Program for UVa Students is an interdisciplinary program intended for students who want in-depth exposure to East Asia at the graduate level while also gaining competency in an East Asian language. The program is designed for students who seek a rich knowledge of East Asia as preparation for careers in business, government service, and media, or as preparation for entering professional schools or doctoral programs. We now offer a streamlined pathway into the M.A. program for suitably qualified UVa undergraduates in the College or in other Schools who already have had exposure to East Asian studies through their majors, minors, or language training.
Any Third or Forth-year student who wishes to be considered for admission should apply by March 31, 2017.
