Department Chair: Amy Dooling

One of the first liberal arts colleges to establish a department of Chinese in 1965, Connecticut College expanded its unique commitment to the field through the creation of an interdepartmental Asian studies program in 1970, and again in 1985 with the addition of the department of Japanese. Today Chinese, Japanese and Asian studies are united under the department of East Asian Languages and Cultures.

We in East Asian Languages and Cultures are of the conviction that extensive language training coupled with a learning perspective that is more Asia-centered allows our students to gain true insight into Asia in a variety of contexts.
