Academic Program

The Committee on Inner Asian and Altaic Studies supervises the work of doctoral graduate students whose interest in Inner Asia is not confined to languages or history alone, but encompasses linguistics, history, religion, art history, and general cultural study. Courses relating to Inner Asian studies are given by members of the committee and other faculty in the departments of Anthropology, East Asian Languages and Civilizations, History, History of Art and Architecture, Linguistics, Music, Near Eastern Languages and Civilizations, South Asian Studies (formerly the Department of Sanskrit and Indian Studies), and by the Committee on the Study of Religion. Interested students should consult the websites of these departments, as well as their sections of Harvard University's Courses of Instruction.
