Students who minor in Asian studies should refer to the Area Studies Minor Requirements . The minor requires 15 credit hours of coursework. The first six credit hours (two courses) must be chosen from the Core Courses or the Global Perspective. The next nine credit hours (three courses) must be chosen from the Asian studies regional specialization curriculum. At least one course must be selected from the social sciences group and at least one course must be selected from the humanities and arts group. At least nine hours must be at the 3000 level or above. (*updated* 2/13/2020)
A cocurricular requirement for the minor in Asian studies is two years of college-level study of an Asian language. To maximize the educational experience, students are strongly encouraged to spend at least one term or summer studying in Asia. Most of the courses taught in University study abroad programs in Asia may be applied to the Asian studies minor.
