The Asian/Pacific Studies Institute (APSI) is the focal point of research and teaching on the Asian/Pacific region at Duke University.

APSI encourages the study of Asian societies and the Pacific region by supporting language study, student and faculty research both on campus and abroad, a Master of Arts in East Asian studies, and undergraduate and graduate certificates in East Asian studies.

APSI also hosts conferences and workshops to engage the Duke community in conversation around issues including China's presence in Africa, cultural revolution in Asia, urbanization in North Korea, and the religions of East Asian countries.


There are no upcoming events.
