Let's Hear From You!


The Asian Studies Program seeks to cultivate an understanding and appreciation of Asia’s diverse cultures and contemporary social, political, business, and economic issues. The program emphasizes interdisciplinary approaches, combining the study of languages, humanities, and the social sciences. In addition to the Asian Studies faculty, members of the Advisory Committee, as well as other faculty, regularly offer courses which are credited with fulfilling requirements of the degree(s). For a full listing of Asian-Studies related courses, see “Breadth Courses for the Major and Minor.” The many unique cultures within Asia offer the student distinct perspectives on art, literature, religion, and philosophy, developed through a history dating back thousands of years. The Asian Studies curriculum emphasizes China and Japan. Courses are also offered and encouraged, spanning the entire geographic area, which compare and contrast the development and current state of cultures throughout the Asian region.
