Asian Studies Minor

Advisor: Ida Fadzillah Leggett, Department of Sociology and Anthropology

The minor in Asian Studies is designed to provide students an opportunity to examine the cultures, economies, geography, histories, governments, philosophies, politics, and religions of Asia. The minor requires 18 semester hours within an interdisciplinary structure. All students pursuing the minor are required to take 6 hours from the core and 12 hours from the general electives. Directed readings, special topics, internships, or language instruction in any pertinent department may be pursued with prior approval of the minor advisor. No more than 6 hours of these courses may be counted towards the minor.

Interdisciplinary Minors

Interdisciplinary minors require the student to complete a minimum of 15 to 21 hours from a list of specific courses. Unless otherwise noted, a student may take no more than 6 hours of courses from a single department until he or she surpasses the required minimum number of hours necessary for completing the minor. Exceptions to this rule may be found within the discussions of several of the minors. In most cases, a student is also limited to just 3 hours of credit toward the minor in the same department or discipline in which he or she is taking a major. Except for the Paralegal Studies minor, no course may be counted both for major and minor credit. Students must fulfill all departmental prerequisites for any course within an interdisciplinary minor. In some cases, advisors may approve course substitutions within these program requirements.
