Asian Studies

Advisor — Ericson

The development and life of Asian cultures from the perspectives of history, humanities, and the social sciences, with emphasis on China, Japan, Korea, or South Asia. 6 units minimum. 

Students pursuing a minor in Asian studies must successfully complete a minimum of six blocks of Asian studies and related courses. These courses include two units of beginning language study (Chinese, Japanese, or other Asian languages which are taught through officially affiliated study-abroad programs) and PA290 Studying Asia (as the integrative experience). In addition, students must select three additional courses from the courses listed under the Asian studies program. One of these three courses must be either an Asian language course at the 200-level or a 300-level course. Students are expected to choose their courses with a consideration for coherence and relation to the Asian language they studied.
