Asian Studies Minor
For a 15-credit minor in Asian Studies, students complete the following:
|ASST 4999||Asian Studies Seminar 1, 2||3|
|Select four courses from the Asian Studies Elective list 3, 4||12|
Normally taken during the junior or senior year.
ASST 3990 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.
Study of an Asian language is not required for the minor, but is encouraged. Two language courses in the same language may be counted toward the minor.
One of the electives must be from the humanities (English, Modern Languages and Literature, Philosophy, Religious Studies, Visual and Performing Arts) and at least one must be from the social sciences (Communication, Economics, History, Politics).
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.
