The Department of South and Southeast Asian Studies offers an undergraduate major and a graduate degree in South and Southeast Asian Studies. The Global Studies major supports a regional focus on Asia for the undergraduate degree. The Asian American and Asian Diaspora Studies program in the Department of Ethnic Studies offers courses in the study of the Southeast Asian diaspora in the U.S.
Many of the university's professional degree programs, such as those offered by the Goldman School of Public Policy and the School of Public Health, allow for a focus on Southeast Asia, while many Ph.D. programs in the College of Letters & Science, the College of Environmental Design and the College of Natural Resources support a concentration on Southeast Asia within the major field. The Joint Medical Program, a five-year M.S./M.D. degree program, offered through UC Berkeley's School of Public Health and the UC San Francisco School of Medicine, allows students to pursue an area focus on Southeast Asia.
