Minor in East Asian Studies

  • All coursework for the minor must be planned with an advisor from the East Asian Studies minor faculty. To preserve the minor’s interdisciplinary focus, courses must be drawn from at least two different departments.
  • Courses should also represent a student’s range of study beyond one national framework.
  • Students seeking to apply a course with a comprehensive theme (rather than with an East Asian regional theme) to the minor must demonstrate that a major portion of their works, such as a longer term paper or research assignment, has dealt directly with a topic of East Asia.

Concentration Requirements (15 cr.)
  • One 400–level course with East Asian Studies focus; or 300–level course with East Asian Studies focus with an additional research or term paper requirement; or independent study; or study abroad (3 cr.)
