About the Southeast Asian Studies Program

The M.A. in Southeast Asian Studies is an interdisciplinary degree program meets the unique needs of two broad groups of students: those seeking certification of area expertise en route to a disciplinary Ph.D. and those seeking a terminal M.A. en route to a wide range of careers in Southeast Asia, including, among others, employment in business, journalism, and various governmental and international organizations. Students can specialize in one country or design a more regional perspective.
