What is an MSc in Asian Studies? This type of program tends to look at Asian countries, such as China, Japan and Korea, and instruct students on international relations and dimensions of culture concerning those countries and their relationships with the rest of the world. Coursework is likely to involve social topics, politics and history related to Asian countries. In addition to in-depth studies, students may be required to complete a master’s thesis or project. Time spent abroad may also be required by some programs.

Earning a master’s degree in Asian studies can give students a better understanding of cultures outside their own. Becoming fluent in a foreign language and learning about politics and business practices is also a great way to pad a resume or CV, possibly leading to higher salaries down the road.

The cost of earning a master’s degree differs depending on the country of study, school and length of the program. Contact the admissions office of your program of choice to understand all of the costs involved with earning your degree.
