The Center for East Asian Studies (CEAS) is one of the most active interdisciplinary programs on the Stanford campus. A designated Department of Education Comprehensive East Asia National Resource Center, CEAS works with all schools, departments, research centers, and student groups to facilitate and enhance all aspects of East Asia-related research, teaching, outreach and exchange across the Stanford campus. Our vibrant M.A. degree program, active schedule of public lectures and colloquia, competitive student grants, and K-16 outreach programs provide Stanford and the greater peninsula community with a wealth of resources for research on and learning about East Asia.
