Asian Studies


Return to: Academic Programs

The Minor

Eighteen (18) credit hours (six courses, of which at least one must be at the 300 or 400 level) are required for the Asian studies minor.

The following distribution is suggested:

  1. 3 credits in Asian history or Asian art history
  2. 3 credits in social sciences of Asia
  3. 12 credits drawn from any combination of courses approved by the program

Because Asian studies tends to be interdisciplinary by nature, courses in the program are listed separately under departments. Course offerings can be expanded through the use of special topics within relevant departments, at the discretion of the instructor.

Participants will be encouraged, but not required, to study basic Chinese, Japanese, or Arabic, credit for which may be transferred in from other institutions or schools of continuing education. The credits will be counted toward the minor.

The advisor of the Asian Studies Program will be responsible for verifying student compliance with the requirements of the minor.
