Japan and mainland China are the world's largest economies after the United States.  South Korea and Taiwan are key U.S. trading partners.  The economic and political relationships between the U.S. and East Asia will be among the most important for the U.S. in the 21st century.  In-depth knowledge of East Asia is critical in the new global culture and marketplace. Eastern Civilizations Courses The Eastern Civilizations courses promote a broad understanding of the civilizations of China, Japan, and to a limited extent, Korea.
