The Asian Studies Program at Muhlenberg College offers students the opportunity for multidisciplinary study of South, Southeast, and East Asia and their diasporic communities, integrating the perspectives of fields across the humanities, social sciences, and fine arts. Asian countries and cultures play an increasingly influential role both in international affairs and in our own local communities. Through coursework and independent study at Muhlenberg, as well as through direct and active engagement with people and ideas of these regions via co-curricular activities and study abroad experiences, students gain comparative and critical perspectives on diverse aspects of transnational Asia.
