Welcome to the Asian Studies Program!

The Asian Studies Program is a dynamic and multidisciplinary program built on the diverse interests of affiliated faculty members and students from departments across the university. Our faculty and students are engaged in research, teaching, and learning throughout Asia. We offer a Major and a Minor in Asian Studies, both of which focus on knowledge about and proficiency in the cultures and languages of Asia. Our students are prepared for careers with truly international scope.

Asia @ Noon Lecture Series

Asia@Noon talks are held many Fridays throughout the academic year held in various rooms across North Campus. The presenter usually speaks for about 45 minutes, with time for discussion at the end of each talk.
