Five College East Asian Studies

East Asian Studies

Faculty from the five institutions work together to support undergraduate study of East Asia through the Executive Committee of the Five College Center for East Asian Studies. The Committee includes faculty from each of the colleges and the University, representing a range of disciplines and departments, as well as the chair of the Five College East Asian Languages Program.
