This specialised Master’s degree is a joint programme of the Faculty of Humanities, the Faculty of Economic and Social Sciences (SES) and the Graduate Institute of International and Development Studies. The courses broach all aspects of society, from culture to history, economics, politics and international relations. The programme allows students to begin or continue learning an Asian language, such as Chinese, Japanese, Hindi1and Korean.

Job opportunities may be found in the following areas: teaching, journalism, radio, television, publishing, libraries, documentation centres, archives, bookshops, museums, heritage protection organisations, international organisations, diplomacy, private companies, banks, administration, staff management, tourism, public relations, cultural activities, art dealerships, galleries and literary, linguistic and philosophical research and writing, etc.
