Asian Studies Program
Minimum Master Hours: 30
The Master of Arts in Asian Studies encourages students to take a global and interdisciplinary approach to Asian Studies and explore its application to K-12 education, public health, medicine, social work, public policy, law, business, engineering and other professional fields.
The program requires a total of 30 credits, including 8 three-credit courses, a thesis (6 credits), and a minimum of third-year proficiency in an Asian language. Students are required to have both a regional or country concentration and a disciplinary concentration for their program, developed in consultation with the program advisor. Regional concentrations currently include East Asia (China, Japan, and Korea) and South Asia (India and Pakistan). Courses are also available on Southeast Asia. Disciplinary concentrations can focus on one of the departments participating in the program or can involve creative and practical interdisciplinary combinations of courses that fit with the student’s career goals.
