For each area, students will study the cultural background (6-9 units), social sciences (6-9 units), and language (3-6 units).

The Asian Studies minor will acquaint students with the histories, traditional cultures and contemporary conditions of Asian countries and societies. Courses may be selected from anthropology, art, foreign languages, geography, history, music, philosophy, political science, religious studies and business.
