Celebrating a history of over 30 years, the Department of Asian Languages and Civilizations at CU Boulder brings global diversity to the curriculum and the Boulder campus. Our department’s focus on a broad swath of the non-Western world puts us in a position to share worldviews and traditions of literature, culture, thought and artistic expression developed by civilizations in premodern, modern and contemporary South Asia, East Asia, North Africa and the Middle East.

The department offers a Bachelor’s–Accelerated Master’s degree program, Master of Arts, dual MAs and a Doctor of Philosophy in Asian languages and civilizations with specializations in Chinese or Japanese.
