Asian Studies Program at Vanderbilt
The Asian Studies Program is Vanderbilt's home for inquiry into Asian languages and literatures. We are also Vanderbilt's center of interdisciplinary research on the cultures of Asia, with program faculty in Chinese religion and Southeast Asian literature; and affiliated faculty in the departments of History, History of Art, Political Science, Religious Studies, and Sociology. Our faculty's research and teaching areas include East/Central Asia (China, Japan, Korea, and Tibet), South Asia (including India, Bangladesh, and Nepal) and Southeast Asia (particularly Vietnam).
Our students range from those with heritage interest in Asian languages and history to those completely new to Asian Studies. We offer a major and minor in Asian Studies and minors in Chinese Language and Culture and Japanese Language and Culture.
Our course offerings are often used to fulfill the International (INT), Humanities and Creative Arts (HCA), or Perspectives (P) requirements in AXLE. Our language courses may also be used to fulfill the College of Arts and Science language requirement. A complete list of Asian Studies approved courses can be found here.
