The Graduate Certificate in Asian Studies is offered by the Boston University Center for the Study of Asia (BUCSA). It can be earned by post-baccalaureate students in any Boston University graduate or professional program who fulfill the following requirements, in addition to the requirements of their degree programs. No additional coursework is required because courses completed for the Asian Studies Certificate also fulfill course requirements toward the MA degree. Please note that some classes accepted toward the Asian Studies Certificate may not count toward an MA degree in International Relations. Students should be careful to choose courses that will be accepted toward both the certificate and their degree program.
While in theory the Asian Studies Certificate may be combined with any of our MA programs, in practice the relatively complex course requirements of some of our joint programs make it difficult to complete the certificate. The certificate can easily be undertaken by students in the MAIA, IRRN, IRIC, IR/MBA, and IREL programs. Combination with other degree programs may prove difficult.
A list of approved courses can be found here. Other courses may be applied to the certificate with the permission of the director of BUCSA.
