The Program in Asian Studies
This program takes a multidisciplinary approach to the study of the history, economics, politics, geography, languages and literatures, religions, societies, and cultures of the peoples of Asia.
Major requirements provide in-depth studies by encouraging regional specialization (for example, East Asia, South Asia, West Asia, or Southeast Asia) as well as breadth by requiring a common introductory course, a senior seminar, and courses outside the student's chosen regional specialty.
Majors are also required to achieve at least intermediate level competence in an Asian language and are encouraged to spend the junior year abroad.
The program also offers a correlate sequence in Asian Studies.
