EALC provides a large number of courses that cover almost every aspect of East Asian languages, societies and cultures. Courses at the 100-level are general overviews and typically best suited for students with little to no previous exposure to the region. 200-level courses are somewhat more tailored introductions and usually have slightly greater work requirements. 300- and 400-level courses are more focused classes that analyze a specific country or issue. Although most upper level culture courses do not have formal prerequisites, students are advised to have some previous exposure to East Asia, through course work or otherwise, before enrolling in these classes. Almost all upper-level courses are limited to 35 students in order to promote greater faculty-student interaction.

500- and 600-level courses are predominantly graduate seminars typically open to a maximum of 12 students. Exceptional undergraduates may enroll in graduate seminars with the permission of the instructor. Besides these graduate classes, graduate students also can have 300-400 level language courses apply toward their degree, and often some of the 300- and 400-level courses on East Asian society and culture have a graduate section (often listed as E505) under which graduate students can enroll.

Most courses are offered directly by this department and carry an EALC designation -- 'C,' 'J,' or 'K' for language courses (e.g., K101: Elementary Korean), and 'E' for culture courses (e.g., E271: Twentieth-Century Japanese Culture); however, EALC also recognizes a significant number of courses for EALC major/minor credit offered by other departments that do not have an EALC designation. All such courses are listed below. Students may apply to this department to have a course not listed here count for EALC major/minor credit if it can be demonstrated that a significant portion of the course (lectures, readings and written assignments) is devoted to East Asia.
