B.A. East Asian Studies

The three-year B.A. degree programme can be combined with a minor field in almost any other subject, that teaches the languages of East Asia and familiarizes the students with these countries from a regional perspective while exposing them to the relevant academic disciplines in the humanities and social sciences.

Although most classes in the initial year are taught in German or in East Asian languages, there are enough regular advanced offerings in English to make the program attractive even to international exchange students who are not yet fluent in either one of these languages and serves to prepare Heidelberg degree students to participate in one of many exchanges with our partner universities in East Asia and Europe. The current areas of specialization within the East Asian Studies BA degree are Chinese Studies, East Asian Art History and Japanese Studies .
