"When I first saw that [JAPAN 288], “The Japanese Tea Ceremony: The History, Aesthetics and Politics Behind a National Pastime,” was a course offered during Stanford’s spring quarter I was floored. I couldn’t believe that such a nuanced interest of mine was woven into the fabric of Stanford’s academic net. Needless to say, I was quick to sign up, early to the first day and sleepless the nights before class. ... What started out as an intellectual interest has become a philosophical meditation on how to be in the world, all of which is the result of this exceptional class.

Most courses in the Department of East Asian Languages and Cultures are taught by tenure-line faculty, and are small in size, so that students receive individual attention.

The department’s courses have the subject codes CHINA, JAPAN, KOREA, and EALC. General courses are open to all undergraduates and graduate students, are taught in English, and do not require knowledge of an East Asian language.

For ExploreCourses listings of the department's courses, please visit the following or see the table below.
