Asian Studies draws on the resources of many departments to provide
a comprehensive program of study on Asia (especially East Asia). Majors
may concentrate on a geographic area, field, or theme(s). By combining
language with the study of politics, history, society, art, religion
and philosophy, and literature, each student can construct a major tailored
to individual interests.
