The major in Asian Studies is multidisciplinary. Students can enroll in classes offered by the CAPS and by a wide range of departments and programs, such as anthropology, art, Chinese, comparative literature, economics, history, Japanese, Korean, philosophy, political science, religious studies, sociology, and women’s studies. Because the program draws its faculty from multiple programs and departments on the SDSU campus, the major is able to provide resources for understanding East Asia, South and Southeast Asia, the Pacific Rim, the relation of these peoples and cultures to North America, and Asian American diaspora communities. Areas of special interest may be pursued in depth by taking courses related to a sub-area in Asia (i.e. East Asia, or South/Southeast Asia) or disciplinary interests (i.e. humanities, or social sciences). Asian Studies Majors are strongly encouraged to specialize in one Asian language (e.g. Chinese, Japanese, Korean, and Filipino) to fulfill the university foreign language requirements. The Major provides students with the background for careers that require an understanding of Asia, whether in academic, business, government, or community and social services. Students in the major develop an understanding of cultural heritage, societies, and languages, as well as the social, political, and environmental issues of the Asian and Pacific regions. Career Opportunities: The Asian Studies program seeks to provide a background for students planning to enter business, the academic environment, government, or community service wherever the knowledge of Asia and Asians is needed. Students in the major develop an understanding of cultural heritage, societies, language, and Special Forces. Areas of special interest may be pursued in depth.
