The Center for East Asian Studies (CEAS) coordinates University instructional, research, and special activities related to China, Japan, and Korea. Faculty and students who share a common interest in the study of East Asia are brought together by the center from a broad range of academic concerns covering nearly every discipline and historical period. CEAS belongs to the Division of International Comparative and Area Studies in the School of Humanities and Sciences.

Courses offered by the Center for East Asian Studies have the subject code EASTASN, and are listed in the "East Asian Studies [EASTASN] Courses" section of this bulletin.

East Asian Languages—For courses in Chinese, Japanese, and Korean language instruction with the subject codes CHINLANG, JAPANLNG, and KORLANG, see the "Language Center" section of this bulletin. For courses in Classical Chinese with the subject code CHINLIT, see the "Asian Languages" section of this bulletin.

The courses listed in the "East Asian Studies" section of this bulletin deal primarily with China, Japan, and/or Korea. Literature courses are listed separately under the "Asian Languages" section of this bulletin. Many other theoretical and methodological courses within departments at Stanford are taught by faculty who are East Asian specialists; these courses often have a substantial East Asian component and may be found under the department listings in this bulletin.
