Master of Asian and Pacific Studies

Are you curious about your place in a dynamic region? The Master of Asian and Pacific Studies (2 years full-time, or part-time equivalent) immerses you in a nuanced understanding of national and transnational developments regarding people, technologies, languages and ideas.

The program allows you to develop in-depth knowledge by specialising in particular Asian and Pacific regions, disciplines, or thematic areas such as politics and international affairs, history and culture, the environment, gender, or translation.

The ANU College of Asia and the Pacific has the largest concentration of Asia-Pacific researchers and scholars outside of Asia. We teach the broadest range of Asian and Pacific languages and are recognised as a world leader in teaching and research on the region.
