Asian Studies Students

Asian Studies

The initial focus of the Asian Studies minor is East Asia, due to the region's historical and contemporary significance. Although the minor emphasizes China and Japan, students also study linkages between those two countries and other parts of East Asia (the Korean Peninsula, Mongolia and Taiwan), plus connections between East Asia and other regions, such as Southeast Asia, South Asia, Central Asia and Oceania.
