The East Asian studies minor is a multidisciplinary exploration of the history, politics, and culture of East Asia. Designed for any student with an interest in East Asia, this program is particularly beneficial to students whose career path requires a knowledge of East Asia’s rich history and culture, e.g., majors in history, international studies, political science, sociology and anthropology, as well as business, management, and marketing, science, and health studies majors, and related fields.
The minor consists of 18 credits, six courses at the 200-level and higher in History, International Studies, and/or Political Science, two courses each focusing on China, Japan, and Korea. Chinese, Japanese, or Korean language courses are beneficial and recommended for students who intend to further pursue their interests in, or East Asia-related careers, but are not required. Select topics should have HIS, IST, or POL prefixes; others may be applicable. Please consult the program for advising.
Note: Four of the six courses should be at the 300-level or higher.
