The Minor in East Asian Studies

Students interested in China, Japan and Korea, especially the interconnections between East Asian culture, history and politics, should consider the East Asian Studies minor. This interdisciplinary course of study provides students with a critical understanding of East Asia’s central role in the world, both past and present. The minor helps prepare students for dynamic careers in multiple fields, including business, finance, law, medicine, policy, and academia.

Requirements

Course Requirements: A minor in East Asian Studies consists of 18 hours drawn from at least three different departments (e.g., His, Inst, Rel) from the approved list below, with at least one course from each of the three categories – courses with a focus on China, courses with a focus on Japan, and courses with a regional focus. Students who complete relevant internships, study abroad courses, and special topics courses should consult with the East Asian Studies director, Dr. Joshua Howard, prior to enrollment in the course for approval and to determine the appropriate category for the course. The same course may not satisfy requirements for both a student’s major and his or her minor. A minimum grade of C is required in all courses applied toward the minor.

Other Academic Requirements: Students must demonstrate competency in an East Asian language by completing either 6 hours at the 200-level or 3 hours at the 300-level with a minimum grade of C.
