If you are contemplating an Asia-related career in government, business, politics, law, or pre-collegiate teaching, or wish to acquire broadly based East Asia academic training before enrolling in a doctoral program, you should consider the Interdisciplinary Master of Arts in East Asian Studies (IDMA). You may choose China or Japan as the area of concentration.

The University of Pittsburgh has an excellent reputation as a leader in the studies of East Asia—the faculty are some of the most well known in their disciplines, facilities for research are superb, and synergies arising from the mix of these two produce some of the most amazing graduates.
