Information for East Asian Studies majors on studying abroad through EAP.
The EAP offers intensive language and culture programs, as well as a wide variety of regular host university courses. The best way to choose is to look over the options and consult with your UCLA Education Abroad Program counselor and your major advisor.
EAP currently offers programs in the following East Asian countries:
In addition, the UC Education Abroad Program offers three special features to help you choose the right program.
Note: These are not comprehensive lists. Other courses may be approved for East Asian Studies credit. All courses taken for the major must be at least 4.0 units. Two 2.5-3.0 unit courses of similar topics may be combined to fulfill one elective. You can also receive two course credits for one 8.0 unit course. Please see your major counselor for more information.
All classes taken on the UC Education Abroad Program (EAP) are UC approved courses and count toward your 180 unit requirement for graduation; however, your major department has the final authority to determine how the coursework is used to fulfill specific major requirements.
Before going abroad, students should discuss with the department advisor which EAP courses the department will approve for credit toward a major or minor. Students can often make changes to their study plan once they arrive in their country of choice, but should consult with the undergraduate staff advisor by e-mail first.
The EAP Academic Planning Form can be signed by your EAP counselor instead of your East Asian Studies counselor.
(Note: the following guidelines are subject to change. Please see your major advisor for up-to-date information.)
