Welcome to the East Asian Studies Contact page. Here we have descriptions of our faculty, staff and advisors to better help the students to interact and learn about the faculty, staff and advisors. There are also further links to videos or articles that show further work done by the faculty (Professors) to encourage students to learn about their Professors's career and their own research pursuits. The East Asian Studies Program advocates that students connect with Professors, Staff, Advisors and Alumni to help with future pursuits in the EAS Major and Minor and beyond.
Welcome to the East Asian Studies Program

Undergraduate study of East Asia at UC Davis is not concentrated in a single department. The major draws faculty from many disciplines, including anthropology, history, sociology, economics, political science, religion, languages, and literature.

The UC Davis program recognizes that East Asian studies majors often come to the University with little or no background in Asian cultures, and that the career possibilities are exceptionally varied. To meet these two problems, the program offers a background core of basic courses in East Asian history, humanities, social sciences, and languages, plus a wide range of more advanced and specialized courses from which student and advisor tailor an individualized program of study.

Students majoring in other fields, such as literature, economics, history, international relations, even agricultural sciences may find courses in East Asian studies relevant to their particular career goals or academic interests. Also a number of students have undertaken double majors, combining East Asian studies with another area of study. The faculty are as eager to introduce some appreciation of East Asia to future textile engineers, doctors, and agronomists, as they are to train Asian specialists.
