Courses offer an in-depth, challenging and critical thinking based perspective on ancient societies, cutting edge technology and current events in Asian countries, the Asian region, Asian diaspora and Asian American communities.

Our faculty teach more than 100 courses in the arts, humanities, languages and social sciences. We also offer a number of Study Abroad trips to Asia and the Americas, as well as host events and workshops for students.

Drawing from our leading expertise in China and Japan, our program also reflects growing expertise in India and Southeast Asia.
