Asian Studies, Minor
What Can I Do with a Minor in Asian Studies?
You can include the study of an Asian language in your minor and receive credit for it; language skills will greatly strengthen your Asian Studies background. You'll explore Asian history, religions, art history, geography, and humanities. You will have the opportunity to participate in, and earn credits for, exchange programs. With the Asian Studies minor, you will gain a deeper knowledge of, and appreciation for, the cultures of Asia and the Middle East.
Note: To minor in Asian Studies, you must consult with one of the Asian Studies faculty members in addition to being admitted to the university.
A minor is earned in conjunction with a bachelor's degree.
To receive a minor (18 to 24 units) at Northern Arizona University, you must complete a planned group of courses from one or more subject matter areas with a cumulative grade point average of at least 2.0. At least 12 units of the minor must be unique to that minor and not applied to any other minor.
In addition to University Requirements:
- Complete individual plan requirements.
Please note that you may be able to use some courses to meet more than one requirement. Contact your advisor for details.
