About Asian Studies - Arts at University College Cork

Overview

Asian Studies examines the many different countries that constitute this vast continent, from the Middle East to India and the Himalayan States, to Southeast Asia region and the Far East.

The 21st century has been dubbed the "Asian century" because of the rapidly rising economic, cultural and political importance on the world stage of Asian countries, yet in Irelandour knowledge and understanding of this vast area is generally lacking.

Asian countries are very different from each other. The course focuses on contemporary Asia, beginning with an overview of the entire region, including Asian diasporas worldwide. In subsequent years you will choose modules from a variety of disciplines focusing on Asia , allowing you to study particular countries or regions in more depth, and (optionally) to study one or more Asian language.

Study abroad with UCC's partner universities in Asia is also encouraged.

Language subjects will have additional weekly language laboratories and Archaeology and Geography require students to attend field trips as well.

Even though students take only two subjects after Year 1, the workload is broadly similar. Each 5-credit module has approximately 24 one-hour lectures, plus additional language laboratories for languages.

Students take 60 credits worth of modules each year.

Some subjects carry a percentage of the mark from Year 2 into final year.
