Beginning with the current first-year class (the Class of 2017), students interested in a major in the area of East Asian studies must apply to the CEAS during the spring semester of their first year.  

How to learn more about CEAS:

  • For more on the transition from the old East Asian Studies major to the new CEAS major, please see here: http://www.wesleyan.edu/east/ .

  • Fill it out and send it as an email attachment to Steve Angle.

The deadline is Monday, March 31, 2014 

Accepted students will be notified no later than April 4, 2014, and will have major preference for all CEAS-crosslisted courses during preregistration for Fall, 2014.

We expect to welcome virtually all applicants into the College’s inaugural year, and look forward to your input in shaping the CEAS as it grows.
