The program's undergraduate minor affords students an opportunity to develop a multidisciplinary approach to the study of Asians in the hemispheric Americas. The course of study stresses developments within the United States, but also underscores the transnational and comparative contexts of Asian America and the field's connections with African American, American Indian, Latino, and Women's Studies.
Students must work with a faculty adviser from among the program's affiliated faculty and must complete five courses (at least 15 credits) as follows:
a) AAS 1100 (Introduction to Asian American Studies)
ANDb) 2 additional Asian American Studies courses
d) 1 course in East Asian, South Asian, or Southeast Asian Studies.*
(*These courses must be approved by the student's faculty adviser, and they should address issues of race, gender, or the histories and cultures of Asian peoples.)
Students must file an application for the minor with the Asian American Studies Program. Click here to access the online application form
