Overview

Contemporary East Asian societies are vibrant and complex, and they are heirs to rich cultural traditions that continue to inform the present. The four majors offered by the Department of East Asian Languages and Literatures provide students the opportunity to explore these societies and cultures in all their diversity, and to pursue their study of East Asia across national and regional boundaries. The Department houses both undergraduate and graduate (Ph.D.) programs.

Undergraduate Program

The Department offers four undergraduate majors: the B.A. degree program in Chinese Studies (with two emphases: Chinese Language and Literature, and Chinese Culture and Society); the B.A. degree program in East Asian Cultures; the B.A. degree program in Japanese Language and Literature; and the B.A. degree program in Korean Literature and Culture. In addition, minors are offered in Chinese Language and Literature, Chinese Studies, Japanese Language and Literature, Japanese Studies, and Korean Literature and Culture.

Major in Chinese Studies

The major in Chinese Studies offers two emphases: Chinese Language and Literature, and Chinese Culture and Society. The Language and Literature emphasis enables students to understand the extensive and rich literary, historical, social, and aesthetic achievements of China by studying its language, literature, film, religion, and other cultural accomplishments in depth. The Culture and Society emphasis stresses a multidisciplinary examination of modern Chinese culture and society that includes the perspectives of both the humanities and the social sciences. The major emphasizes the complementarity of these approaches in understanding the complexity of the forces that have shaped contemporary China.

Major in East Asian Cultures

The curriculum for the major in East Asian Cultures focuses on the regional dynamics of cultural and social transformations in East Asia. Students benefit from an multidisciplinary approach to the study of intra-regional relationships between East Asian countries in order to situate them in their broader global contexts. By integrating the study of East Asia with theoretical issues that shape the study of world culture in general, students gain the dual perspectives derived from examining East Asian cultures on their own terms and from recognizing the affinities these civilizations share, and the conflicts they encounter in their interactions with the rest of the world.

Additional Information

Planning a Program of Study

The student should plan a coherent program that both fulfills the requirements of the major and covers the student’s areas of interest in allied fields outside East Asian Languages and Literatures.

Students who plan to enroll in a language course in Chinese, Japanese, or Korean will be placed on the basis of a written test and oral interview in the respective language, regardless of their language background or proficiency, unless they have taken previous course work in the same language at UCI. (The number of years of high school-level study is taken into account only as a reference.) The written test is typically administered through the Testing Office; the oral interview, by the appropriate faculty, who will evaluate students’ oral/aural abilities in the target language and consider results from the written placement test and any prior exposure to the language to determine their proper placement level. In the case of some languages, students in the first-year levels will be placed in either heritage classes (for students who have had exposure to the language in question through family ties) or non-heritage classes (for students with no exposure).

The faculty encourages students who are serious about improving their East Asian language ability in reading, writing, and speaking to take advantage of opportunities to immerse themselves in the relevant language by studying abroad through the University’s Education Abroad Program (UCEAP) or through the International Opportunities Program (IOP). Students can gain substantially from first-hand experience of the culture they have studied academically while still making progress toward their UCI degree. Programs are available for one quarter, one semester, or one year. More information is available from academic counselors or at the Study Abroad Program website.

Careers for the Majors

Studies in the East Asian programs will give students the preparation needed to pursue a career involving these important Pacific Rim nations. In an era in which the United States is seeking to come to grips with the challenges and opportunities presented by this vital area of the world, the training in language, literature, and culture offered by the departmental majors will serve students well in a variety of endeavors, such as international business, law, government service, journalism, teaching, and other careers involved with public affairs.

Focused undergraduate study in the language and literary and cultural traditions of an East Asian country is also a valuable preparation for those students intent upon pursuing graduate study in any field of East Asian language or culture.

The UCI Career Center provides services to students and alumni including career counseling, information about job opportunities, a career library, and workshops on resume preparation, job search, and interview techniques. See the Career Center section for additional information.

Graduate Program

The Department offers a Ph.D. degree program in East Asian Languages and Literatures, with concentrations in Chinese, Japanese, and East Asian Cultural Studies. The M.A. degree may be awarded to Ph.D. students in progress toward the doctoral degree.

The graduate program emphasizes rigorous training in language and textual analysis, with equal attention given to the historical, social, and cultural dimensions of literary study. In addition to more traditional vocabularies of criticism and theory, the curriculum encourages exploration of recent challenges to established conceptual and methodological frameworks. The program builds on the foundation of a faculty whose research interests engage major issues in Chinese, Japanese, and Korean literature and culture, while developing connections with the larger community of scholarship at UCI.

Because the graduate program is designed to prepare students for both college-level teaching and advanced research, each student will be required to serve, under direct faculty supervision, as a teaching assistant in an appropriate undergraduate course offered through the Department. As noted below, one quarter’s worth of this teaching may be counted as part of the required course work toward completion of the degree.

Assuming that a student is enrolled full-time and enters the program with no major deficiencies in background or training, the normative time needed to complete the Ph.D. degree is seven years from matriculation. The maximum time permitted is eight years. For students admitted with an M.A. degree or its equivalent from another institution, certain course requirements may be waived upon the approval of a faculty advisory committee, with a consequent reduction in normative time for completion of the Ph.D.

The following graduate emphases are available: Asian American (see the Asian American Studies section); Critical Theory (see the Humanities Special Programs section); Feminist Studies (see the Gender and Sexuality Studies section); Visual Studies (see the Visual Studies section); and Comparative Literature (see below, following the Ph.D. program requirements).

Master of Arts in East Asian Languages and Literatures

Students are not admitted to an M.A.-only degree program but may be granted an M.A. in recognition of progress toward the Ph.D., normally after six quarters of course work and submission of two approved seminar papers, which will serve as the M.A. examination.

Doctor of Philosophy in East Asian Languages and Literatures

Requirements for Admission

In addition to meeting the general requirements for admission to graduate study at UCI, specified by the Graduate Division, all students must present the following for review by an admissions committee composed of members of the faculty in East Asian Languages and Literatures: records of prior scholastic performance, including all college transcripts; three letters of recommendation; samples of written work; and aptitude scores from the Graduate Record Examination. Although the Department does not require entering students to have received an undergraduate degree comparable to its own, it recommends as much preparation in an East Asian language as possible. It also welcomes applications from students whose language training may not be as extensive but who have shown promise in the study of related disciplines. The study of appropriate European languages is encouraged as well.

General Requirements

Upon admission to the program, the student is assigned a graduate advisor, in consultation with whom an advisory committee consisting of two additional faculty members is constituted. The student and committee plan a program of study consisting of 15 graduate courses.

Before advancement to candidacy (normally after three years of graduate study), the student must have (1) completed required course work as detailed below; (2) prepared one paper of publishable quality; (3) completed language requirements as listed below; (4) prepared five research reports on current scholarly articles to be decided upon in consultation with the faculty advisor; and (5) passed the qualifying examinations on four topics to be selected in consultation with the faculty advisory committee no more than two quarters before the examinations are to be taken. At least one of the topics should be related directly to the student’s projected area of specialization in dissertation research.

Students who complete the qualifying examinations successfully are advanced to candidacy for the Ph.D. degree. The normative time for advancement to candidacy is four years. They then write their doctoral dissertation on a topic developed in consultation with the faculty advisory committee. Some period of study abroad, for enhancement of language proficiency and/or dissertation research, is strongly encouraged.
