Asian Studies Minor


Definition of Asia

For the purposes of this minor, Asia is defined first and foremost as a geographic entity to include Western, Northern, Central, South and East Asian areas. Thus, for example, countries such as modern Turkey and areas such as the "Middle East" can rightly be included in "Asia," alongside areas more traditionally understood as part of Asia such as China and India.

Course Requirements

A minimum of twenty-seven (27) credit hours, twelve (12) of which must be in an Asian language and nine (9) of which must be upper division, will be required for completion of the minor. All courses must be passed with a C or better. Topics courses, Honors courses, or special course offerings, may be substituted for course requirements based on the approval of the student's designated minor advisor. Click here for a detailed list of course requirements.

Study Abroad or Capstone Course

Asian Studies Minor students are strongly encouraged to participate in a study abroad program, either for a summer or during the academic year. If the student cannot participate in a study abroad program, this requirement may be fulfilled by completing an upper-division capstone course that is specifically Asian in content and subject to the approval of the student's designated minor advisor.
