Students enrolled in Asia-Pacific Studies are required to satisfy the degree requirements of both the disciplinary department and the collaborative program. The Asia-Pacific requirements can be met concurrently with, or in addition to, home unit requirements.
The Collaborative Master’s Program in Asia-Pacific Studies requirements include:
- A year-long, interdisciplinary core seminar (ASI1000Y “Issues in Asia-Pacific Studies”)
- A choice between:
- Master’s thesis option, OR
- A Major Research Paper option, in combination/in addition to a full course equivalent on Asia-Pacific, OR
- A thesis-equivalent research paper in an independent research half-course. This option must be combined with an additional half-course on Asia-Pacific.
Every student is expected to have a working knowledge of an East or Southeast Asian language by the time of graduation.
The minimum period of enrollment in the Collaborative Program in Asia-Pacific Studies is normally 12 months, except for students in home departments whose programs are two years in length. The time for completion of the program is expected to be:
