Asia Pacific Studies

The programme provides students with in depth knowledge of the politics, economies and societies of the Asia Pacific region. The resources and expertise of the School and other Asia Pacific-related elements of the University make possible a wide range of options for study, research and linguistic development in relation to China, Japan and many other parts of East Asia, and the inter-relationships within the region as a whole. Students apply academic analysis to their experience of the region or to convert past training in another academic discipline for application to the Asia Pacific, while providing the opportunity to develop or enhance relevant language skills. Students are able to acquire research techniques and analytical abilities; devise, organise and carry out projects independently; and have the opportunity to develop or enhance relevant language skills.
