Required Core Courses

Required Distribution Courses
Any three (3) of the following course credits, at least two (2) of which must be outside of the student's major discipline: AST 101 (also JPN), 102 (also JPN), 103 (also JPN), 104 (also JPN), 122 (also HIS), 123 (also HIS), 132 (also REL), 135 (also REL), 204 (also PED), 205 (also PED), 206 (also THR), 208 (also PED), 220 (also ARH), 229 (also HIS), 260 (also REL), 308 (also REL), 322 (also HIS), 323 (also HIS), CHI 101, 102, 103, and 104, as well as the following when offered with Asian contentCFS 366 (also WGS), ECO 341, PED 248, and PSC 250.

Considerations for the Minor
Students pursuing an Asian Studies minor will meet regularly with the Asian Studies Program Coordinator, but maintain their current major Academic Advisor(s).
