The Asian Studies minor is designed to help students develop a nuanced and sophisticated understanding of Asia and its pivotal role in an increasingly globalized world.
As we move into the 21st century, Asia will play an increasingly important role in our lives. Students are encouraged to enhance their majors by gaining competence in Asian culture, language, history, politics and economics through the Asian Studies minor.
The minor in Asian Studies is an interdisciplinary academic program that provides students with an opportunity to supplement their major with a structured and directed program of study in Asian histories, religions, cultures, politics and societies.
The minor is designed to help students:
- Develop a nuanced and sophisticated understanding of Asian countries and their peoples.
- Become more aware of themselves and their role in an increasingly global world.
