Cornell’s East Asia Program, charged with fostering knowledge of the histories, cultures, and contemporary affairs of East Asia (China, Japan, and Korea), serves as a cross-campus clearinghouse for information and is a focal unit for all of the University’s East Asia–related students, faculty, community outreach and public activities. Courses are offered through departments in Agricultural and Life Sciences, Architecture, Art and Planning, City and Regional Planning, Engineering, Hotel Administration, Human Ecology, Humanities, Industrial and Labor Relations, Johnson Business School, Law, and the Social Sciences. A minor in East Asian Studies is offered in the Department of Asian Studies, and a minor in China and Asia-Pacific Studies (CAPS) is offered through the CAPS program. Students enrolled in either of these minors or in majors of East Asia Studies are considered members of the East Asia Program. The program offers a number of East Asia–related activities throughout the year, designed to promote awareness and enjoyment of East Asian cultures on the Cornell campus. The Program is nationally renowned as one of the country’s premier centers for teaching and research on East Asia and in promoting advanced foreign language training in Mandarin Chinese, Korean, and Japanese; area and international knowledge in the liberal arts and applied disciplines focused on East Asia. EAP administers endowment-funded fellowships for East Asia-focused studies and research as well as travel grants to graduate students for studying or conducting fieldwork in East Asia.
