COVID-19: Essential Information

East Asian Studies Jobs and Internship Opportunities

Students and alumni find this organization a useful source on volunteering and job postings.

Almost half of the IGS/EAS majors for whom we have information have gone on to do graduate work. That graduate education includes MAs in Chinese Studies at the Hopkins-Nanjing Center, MBAs (UVA, Pennsylvania, Carnegie Mellon, Georgetown), JDs (UCLA, Penn State, Virginia, UC Berkeley), an MD program at the University of Chicago, a Ph.D. program in political science at the University of Pennsylvania, and a master’s degree in library science at the University of Hawaii. Alumni are also pursuing degrees in public policy (University of Singapore) and global media (London School of Economics).

IGS/EAS alumni are currently employed by the government (Department of Energy, USAID, Millennium Challenge Corporation), at non-profits (Japan Society, Compassion for Migrant Children, Educate!), at corporations (Bloomberg News, CapGemini, Perry Ellis, Amazon, Credit Swisse, John Deere, Barclays Capital), and at law firms. A few work for universities (Asian University for Women) or think tanks (Brookings, World Resources Institute). One is a pastry chef at a top restaurant in Beijing, and another is a trapeze artist with Cirque du Soleil, who uses her Chinese to communicate with Chinese performers.​
