Asian Studies


For an 18-credit minor in Asian studies, students complete the following:

  1. AN 310 Asian Studies Seminar during the junior or senior year. AN 301 Independent Study may be substituted if the seminar is not offered or if program faculty approve a student proposal for independent study in lieu of the seminar. A designated 100-300 level course from a rotation of the course offerings also fulfills the requirement.
  2. (a) CI 253 or a course in English, philosophy, religious studies, or visual and performing arts from the course offerings listed below, AND 
    (b) One course in communication, economics, history, or politics from the course offerings listed below.
  3. Any three other courses from those listed below. Language courses may count for all three only if they are in the same language.

Study abroad in Asia is not required for this minor, but is strongly recommended. Some courses taken abroad may be counted toward the minor with the Asian Studies Director's approval.
