Study Asia in Lund!

In your studies of East and South-East Asia you will learn to describe, explain and understand the social, political and economic development in the region and in individual countries. In our free-standing courses as well as in our master's programme you will meet teachers who are engaged in both teaching and research and have broad experience from the region. We focus on the development of different countries but also study the region's importance in international politics. You can read our master's programme, but also individual courses at both bachelor level and master level that focus on different themes - eg. international relations, human rights, development issues and digital development.

Masters Programme in Asian Studies

We offer a unique programme in Asian Studies. The programme is interdisciplinary and aims to provide you with an advanced knowledge on contemporary issues in East and South-East Asia so that you will have the knowledge and concrete skills necessary to understand and assess social, cultural, economic and political developments in the region. The programme permits you to specialise based on your regional, thematic, and disciplinary focus and to critically examine and discuss issues within the field of East and South-East Asia.

You choose to focus on a country or a region in East and South-East Asia, but also read courses that are more general and deal with cross-regional issues. During the fourth semester you will have the possibility to travel to Asia to carry out fieldwork and collect material for your master thesis.
