Asian American Studies Department

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.

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.

Financial Aid

Financial aid is available to remove the cost barriers that may prevent you from pursuing your educational goals. Assistance is available from a variety of programs funded by federal, state, university and private sources. Students who demonstrate significant financial need may qualify for grant aid while students with less need may obtain low cost loans. Financial need is determined through a federal formula that assesses the family’s relative financial strength and ability to contribute to meeting the student’s educational costs. You may get an estimate of your financial aid eligibility through CSUCC (see below).
