Asian Studies


In this 'Pacific Century,' Asia has never played so crucial a role on the world stage, as the forces of globalization bind the world’s people together in new and unexpected ways. An Asian Studies major lays the groundwork for a career – perhaps a lifetime – of specialized engagement with this captivating part of the world. Language, popular culture, art, society, religion, economy, philosophy, and history are all facets of a core curriculum which leads students towards careers as journalists, public policy experts, government analysts, teachers, and so much more.  Majors are also enriched by a travel experience to Asia; made possible through the College’s J-Term travel courses, strong relationships with colleges such as Kansai Gaidai, in Japan, and ISEP, which places accepted students in exchange programs all around the world.
