The interdisciplinary Asian Studies minor introduces students to history, forms of governance and commerce, genres of art, languages, and ways of talking about human life and divine agency that are part of the cultures and the peoples of Asia.  Asia is home to nearly 40% of the world’s population, some of the fastest growing economies, and the ancestry of friends, neighbors, and colleagues. An understanding of Asia is critical for success in today’s global society.

  1. Formal registration with the director of the interdisciplinary minor ordinarily by first semester of the junior year. 
  2. A minimum cumulative grade point average of 2.00 in courses applied to the minor.  No course grade below a C will be applied toward the minor..
