The Ohio State University Department of East Asian Languages and Literatures (DEALL) is one of the largest programs of its kind in the continental United States. It offers undergraduate degrees in Chinese, Japanese, and Korean studies, as well as MA and PhD programs. It is dedicated to advancing knowledge of East Asian languages, literatures, and cultures. Department faculty work spans several areas of inquiry across geographical and cultural regions of East Asia and in various periods in history.

We have comprehensive programs with real depth. Research foci of our faculty range from early text to modern media, from language pedagogy to performance and folklore.
