What Can I Do with a Minor in Asian Studies?

Are you fascinated with Asian culture? Do you want to meld knowledge from Asian cultures with your primary field of study? Immerse yourself in our Asian Studies minor. You will create a specialized course of study, with help from an Asian Studies advisor, in three different disciplines. You will be offered courses in some of the most sought-after languages: Japanese, Chinese, Arabic, and Sanskrit languages.

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.
