Asian Studies Program
Division V Chairperson: R. Hoag
Program Coordinator: J. Richey
Asian Studies is a multidisciplinary approach to studying the cultures of Asia. The Asian Studies program draws upon courses from a number of academic departments that focus for a significant part of the academic term on one or more aspects, past and present, of these areas. Students are strongly encouraged to take a foreign language and to plan to spend at least one term studying in Asia (usually in the third year).
Asian Studies graduates develop a broad understanding of Asian cultures, and may use this education as a springboard for graduate work, but most will be able to apply their knowledge and skills in a wide variety of non-academic enterprises as Asia becomes more important on the national and international stages. Past graduates have gone to graduate or law school, have become teachers in Kentucky high schools, and have become English teachers in Asia, among other pursuits.
