Asian Studies Honors Program

Return to {$returnto_text} Return to: Programs of Study

The honors program is open by permission of the Asian Studies Committee to Asian Studies majors with a minimum 3.25 cumulative GPA and a 3.5 GPA in Asian Studies courses. Students complete 36 credits in Asian Studies (instead of the normal 33) including two semesters of honors thesis research and writing. Honors theses are completed individually under the direction of a professor who specializes in the student’s area of interest and are approved by a thesis committee comprising the coordinator and two other readers, one of whom may come from outside the program.

Students interested in the Asian Studies honors program should discuss this opportunity as early as possible with their advisors. Students may file a declaration of intent during the sophomore year; a formal application for admission must be made, normally early in the junior year. The program is particularly encouraged for students intending to seek admission to graduate or professional schools. Honors course work is designated on university transcripts; students completing the honors program are recognized at commencement ceremonies.
