Asia is growing in strategic, economic, and cultural importance—as well as in population. Asia is defined broadly to include China, Japan, Southeast and island Asia, South Asia (including India), Central Asia, and the Middle East. These regions embrace the religious influences of Buddhism, Confucianism, Taoism, Hinduism, and Islam (among many other religions). The Asian Studies minor will ground you in this dynamic part of the world with courses in art history, economics, history, politics, and religious studies.
