Asian Studies Minor

The minor in Asian Studies is designed for students majoring in another discipline yet interested in acquiring knowledge of Asian nations and cultures without completing the major program above. Students minoring in Asian Studies must complete 21 units from the courses listed above with a grade equivalent of 2.00 or higher in each course. No more than 9 units may be lower-division. Students must select courses in at least three disciplines (in addition to the language course referenced below) in consultation with the Asian Studies director.

Asian Languages

There is no language requirement for the Asian Studies minor; however, students are encouraged to begin study of an Asian language. One 3-unit Asian language course may be applied toward the 21-unit requirement. Native speakers may receive Asian Studies credit for language courses in their own language above the 302 level.
