Study Abroad Programs

The Department of East Asian Studies strongly encourages students to study in a Chinese-speaking country or in Japan. You can choose to participate in U of A affiliated programs or any other program that fits your budget and your academic goals. For information about a specific program please follow the online links below. All UA students intending to study abroad will need to make an advising appointment with Ms. Hillary Vance in the Study Abroad Office. You can also contact Professor Wenhao Diao about Chinese programs or Professor Nathaniel Smith about Japanese programs.

Please note: if you choose a non-affiliated program you are responsible for having the credits transferred. The Office of Study Abroad and Student Exchange [] can provide information about credit transfer, funding sources, and other aspects of study abroad.
