CEAS Application Deadline Extended to Friday 4/21

The College of East Asian Studies has extended its major application deadline to Friday, April 21.

If you are interested in applying to major in the College of East Asian Studies, please (a) fill out this application form  and then (b) declare the major using the major declaration form in your student portal.  You are eligible to apply if you have taken at least one CEAS class, including language.

While CEAS does allow students to declare after their first year, our major is designed as a three year major, and you will have a better experience if you can join your fellow majors starting in your first year (e.g., you will be invited to our end of the year party).

Good luck with the last few weeks of classes, and I hope to welcome some of you to the CEAS community.

Best regards,

Mary Alice Haddad
Chair, College of East Asian Studies
Professor of Government

Meet-and-Greet with Professor Mike Robinson, 4/5

Come learn more about ongoing research on campus! PSI CHI (Wesleyan’s psychology honor society) is hosting a Professor Meet-and-Greet with Prof. Mike Robinson.  Prof. Robinson is an Assistant Professor of Psychology and Neuroscience & Behavior.
