Overview

“The Asian century is set to begin” – declared Financial Times in 2019 by crunching statistical data and summarizing research done by leading political scientists and economists. With this world-changing trend in mind, VMU launched the master’s degree programme of East Asia Region Studies (EARS) in 2007 making it the first and only graduate programme in the Baltic States that is taught in English and focused on East Asian contemporary politics and society.
In addition to providing core knowledge about modern political, economic and social developments of East Asian countries, i.e. Korea, Japan and China, the programme also creates an encouraging environment for students to design their own study plan according to their research ambitions. As a result, students can further expand their knowledge in region’s history, languages, culture or other fields. In addition, motivated students have a possibility to study at least one semester abroad not only in other European countries but also at one of many VMU’s partner universities in East Asia.

Career opportunities

The programme is aimed at preparing qualified specialists to work in:
• the private sector that seeks to develop business relations with East Asian countries;
• governmental institutions (including diplomatic missions and international governmental organisations, such as EU or UN) that have departments managing relations with China, Japan or Korea;
• think tanks conducting East Asia related analytical work;
• education institutions of all levels that require teachers or administrators with specialized regional knowledge;
• civil society organisations seeking to build ties or conduct activities in East Asia.

In addition, acquiring master’s degree allows graduates of the programme to continue their studies at PhD level in the field of social sciences both in Lithuanian and foreign universities.
