Asian Studies


The Asian studies minor consists of six courses (18 credit hours) completed with a grade of “C” or better.  At this time and for the foreseeable future, ASIA 101 requirement is being waivedYou still need to take 18 credit hours of Asian Studies courses. 

Two of the courses taken for the minor must be at the 300 level, and no more than three courses from any one department may count toward the minor. Coursework in Asian languages is not required, but courses in Asian languages may count toward the required coursework in Asian studies. 

Minors and interdisciplinary minors: not less than 9 credit hours in the individual student’s transcript must be unique to each minor; that is, the courses in question are considered as actually fulfilling requirements of one minor, not of more than one minor or major.

Please register for the Asian Studies minor at LOCUS.
