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 are considered members of the East Asia Program. The program also 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. Recognized as a National Resource Center (NRC) by the United States Department of Education (ED), 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, Cantonese, Korean, and Japanese; area and international knowledge in the liberal arts and applied disciplines focused on East Asia. In addition, EAP typically receives a Foreign Language and Area Studies (FLAS) grant from the U.S. Department of Education. Together with the NRC funding, the FLAS Fellowship Program supports graduate as well as undergraduate students who wish to acquire a high level of competence in East Asian languages critical to the national needs of the United States and a fuller understanding of the areas, regions, or countries in which that language is used.  EAP also administers other endowment-funded fellowships for East Asia-focused graduate studies and research as well as travel grants to graduate students for studying or conducting fieldwork in East Asia.
