Undergraduate Degrees

Bachelor’s Degree in Asian American Studies

The Bachelor of Arts degree in Asian American Studies provides an interdisciplinary approach to explore the diverse histories, cultures, communities, and contemporary realities in Asian America. It is designed to offer students an opportunity to develop a greater understanding of the complexities of Asian American experiences and to prepare them to function in a multiethnic society and multicultural world. The communication and critical analysis skills which are stressed in the program will be instrumental to students pursuing postbaccalaureate degrees in “traditional” disciplines, including History, Geography, Sociology, Psychology, and Literature; in interdisciplinary programs like Ethnic Studies and Women’s Studies; and in professional fields such as Law, Business Administration, and Social Work. The program’s curriculum and broad liberal arts perspectives likewise will prepare students for employment in several professions, including education, public policy, community development, media, social services, and human resources. Admission to the program requires completion of the G.E. Foundation courses.

Bachelor’s Degree in Asian Studies

Asian Studies is an interdisciplinary program that offers three concentrations: Asia Area Studies; Asia and Business; Asia and Globalization.  All of these concentrations share a common core.  Beyond the common core requirements, students select elective courses from one of the three concentrations to complete their 39 unit requirement for the major.  Regular consultation with an advisor is highly recommended.  Because of the importance of statistics to this discipline, students are advised to include STAT 108 among their GE courses.  It is also suggested that students take AST 320 or AST 336 for their required Upper Division WI Capstone course.

Students are strongly encouraged to spend a semester or more in Asia on a study abroad program.  Information about these programs can be obtained at the AAAS office (FO3-340) or the Center for International Education (BH 201).
