On Friday, May 12, 2017, seven talented individuals joined the ranks of APSI alumni with a Master of Arts in East Asian Studies. Joined by their friends and family members, each graduate enjoyed a celebratory reception. At the conclusion, Prof. Giovanni Zanalda, Director of the Duke Center for International & Global Studies, offered his congratulatory remarks and, together with Dr. Yan Li, APSI's Assistant Director, presented the graduates with their diplomas.
We are very proud of our graduates, all of whom are in various stages of pursuing further study at schools such as Columbia, UCLA, McGill, and Harvard, or are considering job offers. We know they will put their Duke education to excellent use as they take their next academic and professional steps.
