Return to {$returnto_text} Return to: Academic Departments, Programs, and Requirements for Majors and Minors

The Asian Studies minor offers students an opportunity to explore the dynamic transformations that are sweeping through Asia, while situating these processes within a historical, philosophical/ethical, political, economic, cultural, religious, and literary context. This interdisciplinary approach is designed to provide students with a broad foundation of ideas and perspectives with which to understand and explain the challenges and opportunities facing Asia within a global context.
