Asian Studies Minor

Home to more than half of the world population, Asia has a rich history and is increasingly playing a more important role in the contemporary world. With interdisciplinary and area studies approaches, the Asian Studies minor invites students to delve into the history, cultures, religions, arts, business, and economics of Asia. 

Students have the opportunity to design their own focus on a particular “path” of study, i.e., China, Japan, and South Asia. The curriculum leads students from two required introductory courses  (History/IS 232 and RS 120) to upper-level electives (9 of the remaining credits must be upper-level).

Internships and study abroad will also be recommended and rewarded with credits within the minor.
