What is Asian Studies, and why study it?

This is a program devoted to the multi-disciplinary study of cultures and civilizations of Asia. Students may study the rich historical, religious, artistic or literary traditions of the continent, while also engaging with the region’s contemporary dynamic economic, business and social aspects. Students may take advantage of one of the many travel and study abroad programs that work well in conjunction with our program, and will discover that a wide range of opportunities become possible.


Program of Study for the Minor in Asian Studies:

  1. Students are required to complete a total of 16 credit hours (5 courses and a 1hr capstone) to be drawn from at least three different departments. At least 9 credits (3 courses) must be taken at the 4000-level, while no more than 6 hours can be at the 2000 level. We provide a list of courses that qualify for our program. In addition, other courses that contain at least 33% subject material on Asia will qualify for the minor, subject to approval by the Minor Committee. Per USG rules, courses taken to satisfy Core areas A-E may not be counted as coursework in the Minor.
  2. The capstone, XIDS 4000, is a 1hr course required for completion of the minor
