Welcome to the Department of Transnational Asian Studies. We are excited that you are considering or have chosen Asian Studies as your undergraduate major. Asian Studies is a field that both prepares you for a wide range of professional and academic careers and inspires you to learn about Asia and Asia-related cultures and histories.

The Department offers both a major and a minor in Asian Studies. The stand-alone major strives to introduce students to a unique brand of Asian Studies centered on a transnational approach. Its curriculum is designed to target both breadth and depth in understanding Asia.
