The Pacific region in general and East Asia in particular are world regions of outstanding economic and political importance. However, differences, especially in the areas of language, culture and society, pose particular hurdles for students who wish to study East Asia in particular. “Asia-Pacific Studies” offers an incentive and at the same time a guideline to seek this engagement. In addition to subject-specific courses offered by the Asia Pacific Forum and other PLUS institutions, students must also complete language courses in at least one East Asian language at the PLUS Language Center.


Target Group

The program is aimed at students of all fields of study,

  • who would like to research issues relating to this region of the world and seek a deeper understanding of the backgrounds.

  • who are planning a stay there as part of their studies or future career.

  • who wish to systematically pursue a personal interest in the region alongside their studies.
