The Master of Arts program in Southeast Asian Studies offers students a framework within which to carry out the interdisciplinary study of the peoples and nations of insular and mainland Southeast Asia. Graduate students can also specialize in Southeast Asian Studies while pursuing a Master’s in another academic department.
The Jackson School of International Studies PhD program combines the School’s strength and expertise in area studies with foundational fields such as Peace, Violence & Security. Graduate students whose research interests focus upon Southeast Asia may consider this new and innovative program which is tailored for scholars and practitioners who want to develop deep knowledge of areas in the context of specific contemporary global themes, policy challenges, and real-world problems. It combines an intensive research tutorial system with specific coursework to allow doctoral candidates to finish in 3-4 years.
