Program Requirements & Courses Offered

People living in Asia constitute over half the world’s population, and represent some of the oldest civilizations continuous on the globe. The Asian studies minor emphasizes study of an Asian language, particularly Japanese, in combination with courses that will enhance students’ awareness and appreciation of Asian literature, history, politics, economics, religion, geography and society.

Georgetown College students who complete this minor will be culturally and linguistically literate in Asian topics, broadening their horizons and enabling them to work, travel or study in Asia or with Asian people in the U.S.A. or other non-Asian parts of the world.
