General Information


The Department of East Asian Studies offers programs leading to the Master of Arts degree in East Asian Studies.

The application deadline for September admission is January 15. 

For further information, see the Department website, www.eastasianstudies.ualberta.ca.

Entrance Requirements


The Department's minimum admission requirements are an undergraduate degree with an average of 3.3 in the last two years of undergraduate work (or graduate work) at the University of Alberta, or an equivalent qualification from a recognized institution. Applicants with a grade point average between 3.0 and 3.2 who are exceptional in other areas of the admission requirements may be considered. A TOEFL score of 600 (paper-based) or 100 (Internet-based), or an IELTS score of 7.0, is required where applicable (see English Language Requirement ).

Four years of university-level study (or the equivalent) in the language(s) in which the student will be carrying out research are required; an undergraduate background related to the proposed area of graduate study is preferred.

The Department is prepared to accept a limited number of students who are otherwise well-qualified and show language aptitude (demonstrated to the satisfaction of the Department by passing an exam or some other form of assessment) but who have less than the required level of proficiency in English or the language in which they will be conducting research. Such students will be required to spend one or two extra years in their MA program to meet this qualification and will be admitted initially as a qualifying graduate student; they may be required to take undergraduate or other language courses in addition to the courses required for their MA degree.

Financial Assistance


The Department annually appoints a number of graduate research and teaching assistantships. Graduate students may also be eligible for various University fellowships and bursaries. For details consult www.eastasianstudies/en/GraduatePrograms

Further information regarding funding may be obtained from the Graduate Coordinator, Department of East Asian Studies.
