Asian Studies (ID), B.A.


Return to {$returnto_text} Return to: Majors, Minors, and Other Programs

Requirements for the Interdepartmental Major:


Eight courses including three courses in either Chinese or Japanese language and one course devoted to a senior project. Students must also take at least one of the core courses that are designated in the course list below with an asterisk. A core course is designed to give students more breadth in their study of Asia by dealing with both China and Japan over a substantial period of time. Of the three remaining AIS courses, one must deal entirely with an Asian country outside the student’s language concentration. (For example, a student who takes a year of Japanese language must take one course that deals solely with China or another Asian country.) Students are strongly encouraged to apply for the terms abroad to China and Japan.

  

  

  

Requirements for Honors in Asian Studies:


To be eligible for honors in the program, the student must fulfill the following requirements: (1) a minimum index of 3.30 in the program; (2) a cumulative index of 3.30 or better; (3) a grade of “A minus” or higher on the senior project; and (4) superior performance in an oral exam based on the senior project.
