The Asian Studies Program at Muhlenberg College offers students the opportunity for multidisciplinary study of Asia, integrating the perspectives of fields across the humanities, social science, 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 via co-curricular activities and study abroad experiences, students gain a more nuanced understanding of the continuing contributions of Asian cultures globally.

Minor Requirements

Students must choose six courses from at least three different departments, one of which may be a Senior Capstone Project.  The courses also may be chosen from Special Topic courses as approved by the Minor Program Director and from among the regular College offerings listed below.  One semester of Asian Language study may be counted toward the minor.  See the Program Director for official approval of any course not listed below.  Students are also encouraged to supplement regular course offerings with language study offered on LVAIC campuses and study abroad opportunities.
