Designated Emphasis Requirements

The Designated Emphasis in Southeast Asian Studies, a specialization that includes new methods of inquiry in conjunction with a student’s disciplinary field of interest, is awarded in addition to a Ph.D. degree. It requires 12 units of coursework in the field of Southeast Asian Studies, taken in at least two Departments, including one core course (SEAS 200) and 4 units of Thesis Study (SEAS 299) or Directed Research (SEAS 297), resulting in a paper supervised by a member of the Southeast Asian Studies Program. Language proficiency is preferable though not required. Courses taken for the DE cannot be used towards the PhD.
