Asian Studies, BA Major in


The Asian Studies program is an interdisciplinary program designed to provide the student with a broad understanding of the traditional and modern civilizations of East Asia and Southeast Asia. The Asian Studies program offers both major and minor specialization. Study of an Asian language is strongly recommended for all majors and minors, and language courses beyond level 4 may be counted toward the major requirements.

Students majoring in Asian Studies will choose a core of four courses, concentrating on either traditional or contemporary Asia, and also take a seminar as part of the major. To assure that students receive training in a specific discipline, students are required to complete a minor (18 s.h.) in the discipline of their choice, in addition to their Asian Studies courses, as a requirement of the major.
