Current research students
At SEAS we have a thriving postgraduate research culture, and we encourage students to develop their interests and ambitions through pursuing a research degree.
Research students can study a broad range of themes centred on the countries of East Asia and, in addition, we make sure that they quickly become integrated into the department's research teams.
