Asian Studies


The Asian studies program offers students the opportunity to develop a broad understanding of Asia by using multiple disciplinary lenses and cross-cultural comparisons. Students are encouraged to think critically about historical and contemporary interactions among diverse groups both within the continent and globally. To this end, they can select courses from, and propose independent research projects in, 9 departments on campus. Students may declare combined majors in Asian studies and history, government or religious studies; they may also minor in Asian studies.

St. Lawrence  offers study abroad programs in China, India, Nepal, Japan and Thailand. An undergraduate degree in Asian studies prepares students for careers in business, education, government, international relations, journalism and the arts and provides a foundation for advanced graduate work with particular disciplinary or regional emphases.
