Asian Studies

The Asian Studies minor is designed for students with an interest in Asia.

The Minor in Asian Studies is available as an elective to students who are enrolled in bachelor's degree programs at Michigan State University.  Although the minor complements a number of major fields, students who plan graduate study related to Asia or who wish to pursue careers in government or with corporations in Asia may find the minor particularly appealing.  With the approval of the department and college that administer the student's degree program, the courses that are used to satisfy the requirements for the minor may also be used to satisfy the requirements for the bachelor's degree. Courses taken in a Michigan State University Study Abroad program in Asia may be counted toward the minor with the permission of the Director of the Asian Studies Center and the student's advisor.

The Minor in Asian Studies provides an opportunity for students to create a multidisciplinary specialty with Asia as the  focus.  The student's program of study for the minor must be approved in advance and in writing by the advisor for Asian Studies in Social Science.
