    Master program

    Courses offered by DEAS are designed to enable students to advance their studies in their areas of interest and to have fundamental interdisciplinary knowledge and views. We may have 1~2 courses instructed in English in each semester, but most of our courses are instructed in Chinese. Therefore in order to meet the requirements of  listening comprehension in class, we highly recommend students to have Chinese language proficiency higher than designated level (TOCFL Level 4 or New HSK Level 6).

    Our educational goal is to cultivate cross-disciplinary talents for regional application and research course. The course covers two fields, i.e. “culture and its application” and “political economy and regional development.” Our Master Program aims to cultivate professional research talents with independent thinking and research capacity. The Program is featured with wide-range research fields, diverse faculty, and courses covering “culture and its application” and “political economy and regional development.” Along with the increasingly diversification of current regional research projects and the gradual recognition on cross-disciplinary talents, students tend to select preferred courses with significant extent and depth, regardless of their research interests in areas such as East Asian culture and thoughts, cultural creativity and application, East Asian political economy and cross-strait relations, globalization and governance.  The course features for M.A. program are as below:
