Asian Studies Program

As an important contributor to the School of Languages, Cultures and World Affairs’ core mission of international education, the program in Asian Studies is dedicated to preparing students to flourish in an increasingly globally minded world where the cultures of East, Central and South Asia play an ever more important role.  This exemplary, comprehensive program enables students to gain expertise in the cultures, history and languages of a number of regions, yet is flexible enough to allow the student to adapt the program to their major field of study and specific educational and career goals. The Asian Studies Program offers students a broad range of courses, study abroad programs, and extra-curricular opportunities aimed at developing linguistic proficiency and cultural literacy in Arabic, Chinese, and Japanese Studies.Thus the Asian Studies program provides an experience that will be valuable to students interested in pursuing careers as varied as international business, law, medicine, and graduate work in the humanities.
