Asian Studies Collection Policy

Program Description

The primary mission of the Asian Studies Program is to promote and facilitate interdisciplinary studies in Asian anthropology, art, economics, history, philosophy, religions, political science, and sociology, and to provide Asian language training to undergraduate students--in recognition of the critical importance of the region to the United States and the world. The Program leads to a coordinate major in the Liberal Arts and Sciences, and is staffed by six full-time faculty (all of whom are appointed to different departments) and five or more adjuncts. The Program also sponsors, with active cooperative and exchange arrangements, a semester abroad program at Kansai Gaidai University in Japan.
