Asian Studies
Offered as a minor

The interdisciplinary Asian Studies minor introduces students to history, forms of governance and commerce, genres of art, languages, and ways of talking about human life and divine agency that are part of the cultures and the peoples of Asia.  Asia is home to nearly 40% of the world’s population, some of the fastest growing economies, and the ancestry of friends, neighbors, and colleagues. An understanding of Asia is critical for success in today’s global society.
