Asian Studies Minor

Sociology and Anthropology  
Advisor: Ida Fadzillah Leggett

The Minor in Asian Studies is designed to provide students with a broad and flexible set of courses and requirements through which they can explore all aspects of Asia. The minor requires 18 credit hours to be chosen from the following list of course options. Up to 9 credits of this minor may come from pre-approved MTSU Study Abroad courses conducted in Asia. Directed readings, special topics, and internships in any pertinent department may be pursued with prior approval of the minor advisor; no more than 6 credit hours of these 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. 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.
