The interdepartmental Minor in Asian Studies permits students to concentrate their course work in one of the following areas: General Asian Studies, East Asia, South Asia, or South- east Asia. For each geographic area, students will study the cultural background, social sciences, and language of the chosen area. The Asian Studies minor is designed to acquaint students with the histories, traditional cultures, and contemporary conditions of Asian countries and societies.


Completion of 18 units, including 4-6 units of language, is required. Courses may be selected from Anthropology, Art, Business, Economics, Foreign Languages, Geography, History, Music, Philosophy, Political Science, and Religious Studies.
