Through an interdisciplinary approach, students explore the history, economics, politics, development, culture, languages, and international relations of Asia. Our program encompasses all regions of this diverse and multifaceted continent: East, Southeast, and South Asia.
Welcome to the Asian Studies Program
We offer a major or minor in Asian studies. Our interdisciplinary curriculum relies on a multi-focal analysis of Asia that increases awareness and deepens understanding of the region.
Many Asian studies students choose to study abroad. Select from a variety of programs in China, Vietnam, India, and more.
