Major, Minor

Degree: Bachelor of the Arts

There's no question about the influence Asia has had on world history, as the birthplace of four major religions, written language, cartography and everything from gunpowder to paper.

Union's Asian Studies Program promotes knowledge and understanding of the language, culture and art of Asia, with emphasis on China and Japan. Our incredibly diverse faculty members offer courses in many disciplines across the spectrum of the humanities and social sciences – contributing their expertise and passions in everything from art history to political science.

With their acquired depth and breadth of knowledge, our students pursue a range of independent projects, research and theses as they engage with the history and cultures of Asia.
