Asian Studies Division (ASD)

Founded on the humanities and the humanistic social sciences, the Asian Studies major is an interdisciplinary program dedicated to the study of the histories, cultures, and societies of Asia, with emphasis on East Asia.

Asian Studies (AS)

More than half of the global population lives in Asia. By 2030, Asia will be home to sixty-five percent of the global middle-class. While there are great opportunities, Asia is also home to many pressing problems: widening income disparities, persistent gender inequality, threats to democracy, dangerous military buildups, and tremendous ecological damage. Thus, in both the public and private sector, there is a pressing need for problem solvers who have deep contextual knowledge about Asia. Our aim is to cultivate intelligent and articulate students who will not just survive but thrive as professional men and women in their respective fields.
