A minor in Asian Studies requires 20 semester hours selected from the list of regularly offered and special topics courses. Courses must be chosen from at least two disciplines. Students are strongly encouraged to consider appropriate foreign language study (Japanese or Chinese) and study abroad within the region.
Up to eight semester hours of language study can be counted toward the minor. With the approval of the program coordinator, up to 12 semester hours of study abroad credit can be counted toward the minor.
Students interested in pursuing further study of the region should consider an international studies major with an Asian regional concentration.
