Asian American Studies
The minor and the option in Asian American Studies are designed for students who have an interest in learning about the experiences, expression and social conditions of Americans of Asian ancestry, including those whose origins trace back to central, south and southeast, as well as east Asia and the Pacific Islands. Cross-disciplinary in nature, Asian American Studies draws on a wide variety of courses offered throughout the university which relate to Asian American history, art, literature, politics, socio-economics, psychology and relations to other ethnic and sociopolitical groups. In addition, the Asian American Studies Program currently offers twenty-one (21) of its own courses.
The goals of both the option and the minor are to encourage more students to do work in the area and to prepare students in selected career paths where sensitivity to and knowledge of Asian American issues, history and artistic expression are important. These include careers in counseling, human services, nursing, public administration, law and the health professions; teaching careers in history, English, political science, psychology, sociology, as well as elementary school education.
