The Department of History at the University of Colorado at Boulder offers a program in Asian History for master's Master's Degree students. Students may pursue graduate-level studies in history in the following fields: Modern East Asia (China and/or Japan); premodern South Asia; modern South Asia; and premodern or modern Asia. The Department of History encourages inter-area and interdisciplinary work with one or more of the approximately 80 faculty members across campus who research and teach about Asia.
Some financial support for graduate study may be available through the Department of History in the form of fellowships and teaching assistantships. Additional funding may come from the Foreign Language and Area Studies (FLAS) fellowship program through the U.S. Department of Education.
In addition to advanced academic training, M.A. students who are interested in K-12 education can benefit from close ties between the Department of History and the nationally recognized Program for Teaching East Asia (TEA), which is based at the University of Colorado and conducts projects designed to enhance and expand teaching and learning about East Asia at the elementary and secondary school levels.
