Shorenstein APARC Courses

Engaging Stanford students in rigorous analysis of challenges and policy issues critical to the Asia-Pacific region and the United States

Academic foundation for Stanford students

Shorenstein APARC faculty prepare Stanford undergraduate and graduate students to tackle a broad array of policy-relevant questions pertaining to the countries of the Asia-Pacific, their regional and international affairs, and U.S.-Asia relations and alliances.

Shorenstein APARC Faculty Courses

While APAPRC is not a degree-granting center, our faculty and researchers teach courses through other Stanford departments each academic year. We often sponsor team-taught, multidisciplinary courses that prepare students for deeper interactions with the countries of the Asia-Pacific region and that provide students real-world perspectives on how policymakers and diplomats handle sensitive political crises.
Our faculty also teach courses as part of China Studies in Beijing, a Fall Quarter program at the Stanford Center at Peking University (SCPKU), as well as courses that connect faculty and students through state-of-the-art video-teleconferencing classrooms at Stanford and SCPKU.

Watch: "The United States, China, and Global Security"

Launched by APARC’s U.S.-Asia Security Initiative in Spring 2016, this graduate-level course (EASTASN285) is taught simultaneously at Stanford University and the Stanford Center at Peking University, using advanced teleconferencing technology.

My role as the course assistant for Ambassador Eikenberry's EASTASN 285 class was a highlight of my time at Stanford, and I am sure that I will draw upon the skills I practiced and conversations I had in my post-graduate career.
