Asian Studies is an interdisciplinary program administered by the Department of History. It is designed to facilitate an academic concentration in South, Southeast or East Asian civilization.
The faculty in Asian studies includes professors of religion, literature, philosophy, history, sociology, political science, business and education. Together, they offer a broad range of courses conceived to provide students both with the opportunity to encounter Asia from the perspective of its inhabitants and to employ a comparative perspective on the Asian contribution to world civilization.
Students minoring in Asian Studies must have the approval of a member of the Asian Studies Faculty. For more information please contact Dr. N. Harry Rothschild.
