Alan T. Baumler, Coordinator

(1, 2, 3)

The Committee of Asian Studies offers an interdisciplinary major and a minor to provide students with the opportunity to increase their knowledge of the world’s largest, most populous, and most diverse continent. Students enrolled in the Asian studies major or minor will find that the course offerings furnish excellent preparation for careers in business, government, journalism and public relations, and teaching.

To minor in Asian studies, students must complete a minimum of 18 credits, no more than 6 of which may have the prefix of their major. ASIA 200  is required of all Asian studies minors. At least 12 credits must come from Category A (Exclusively Asia-Focused); 3 credits of an Asian language course may apply to the Category A requirement. No more than 3 credits from Category B (Substantially Asia-Focused) may be applied to the minor.

Required Course: 3

Electives 15

The remaining 15 credits should come from the list of Category A, exclusively Asia-focused classes from the major. Students may, but do not have to, apply up to 3cr of an Asian Language class and/or 3cr of a Category B class.

Total Minor Requirements: 18

(1) The subject matter varies in rotating topic courses (e.g., HIST 497 , RLST 485  etc.); and special topics courses (i.e. classes numbered 281 and 481). When concerned with Asian Studies, these courses may be applied to either Category A or Category B with the approval of the Asian Studies Committee.

(2) With the program coordinator’s approval, 3cr of an internship (493) may be counted toward the Asian Studies minor.

(3) Courses need to be in at least two different prefixes.
