Graduate students can also specialize in Southeast Asian Studies while pursuing a Master's or PhD in an academic department. Within the framework of departmental requirements they can focus study and research on issues within Southeast Asia. Currently, students with Southeast Asia interests are pursuing advanced degrees in anthropology, asian languages and literature, architecture, communication, comparative literature, economics, ethnomusicology (pdf), geography, history, forestry, public heath, law, linguistics, political science, social work, sociology. Students interested in pursuing advanced degrees in these departments and colleges should refer to the list of core Southeast Asia faculty and confer with them directly about procedures and requirements for admission into these programs.

The Southeast Asia Center operates an unmoderated graduate student email list [SEAC-grad] for announcements pertaining to Southeast Asian studies and the Southeast Asia Center at the University of Washington. We welcome all UW graduate students from various departments, disciplines, schools, and colleges. To have your email address added to this list, please click here.
