A historic, architectural structure in Asia/The Great Wall of China overlooking a town

The Asian studies minor allows students to see how different disciplines bring their methodologies to bear on the study of Asia. It also fosters in students a global awareness and better understanding of both Asia and other parts of the world, which can be applied to careers in business, government, education, law, journalism, and academia. This program is open to students from any major.


For requirements, courses, and course details, please refer to the academic catalogue. Any course wherein at least fifty percent of its content addresses the study of Asia or part of Asia can count toward the minor.
