The Learning Environment
The program in Asian Studies offers a variety of courses types from large lecture classes to small seminars. Many of the more advanced undergraduate courses are combined with graduate offerings, allowing undergraduates to get early exposure to graduate-style coursework. Faculty also offer independent studies for students interested in areas that do not match the program's regular offerings. The program provides a capstone experience through a senior seminar, where students work with an advisor to do a research project. It also offers an internship program where students gain career-valuable experience in academic program operation and outreach.
