East Asian Studies

The East Asian Studies minor is an interdisciplinary program that combines courses in languages, arts, humanities, and social sciences to give students a full understanding of East Asian culture.

The East Asian minor requires seven courses, including language courses in Mandarin Chinese or Japanese. Students who take these courses prior to their enrollment at the College are not required to take them to complete the minor.

Course options also include China Through Literature, Political Economy of East Asia, Asian Heritage and numerous history courses. Additional course information is available in the W&J College Catalog.
