East Asian Studies

We train professionals for a global and multicultural world

The UOC’s East Asian Studies programme is a consequence of interest among people in the west in gaining a clear, reliable, cliché-free insight into the countries of Asia.

The surge in that interest is attributable to east Asia’s economies having developed tremendously and become highly significant in the global economy in recent years, as well as to cultural, artistic, social and religious aspects of countries such as China and Japan having come to hold greater sway over the west, where processes such as immigration and globalisation have led to their assimilation into and adaptation to our way of life.
