About

Interdisciplinary

Students will have the broadest possible perspectives on Asian issues, but must also be grounded in a particular discipline and its analytic methods.

Cross-Cultural

Cultural understanding will be rooted in language immersion and experiential encounters both at the College and through the extensive array of programs for study in Asia.

Integrated

Students will focus on a language and culture of their interest and demonstrate competency and sophistication in integrating their knowledge of that area.

Knowledge and Practice

Students will connect scholastic study with kinesthetic knowledge to integrate discipline-based perspectives with the performing arts and practices of Asian cultural traditions, such as calligraphy, gamelan, meditation, tai-chi and yoga.
