Asian Studies Program

 

Asian Studies Program

The Asian Studies Program is Vanderbilt's home for the study of Asian languages and cultures.  As a center for interdisciplinary inquiry, our program explores Asia through the multiple lenses of literature, history, history of art, religious studies, political science, and sociology. Our faculty's expertise encompasses a wide range of regions, countries, and languages, including East/Central Asia (China, Japan, Korea, and Tibet), South Asia (including India, Bangladesh, and Nepal) and Southeast Asia (particularly Vietnam).

Over three hundred students from all around campus study Asian languages with us each year.  With the study of Asian languages at the core, the Asian Studies major, along with minors in Chinese and Japanese, equip students with a crucial understanding of Asia’s central role in the world, both past and present.  Through its challenging global curriculum, Asian Studies prepares students for dynamic careers in multiple fields, including business, finance, law, medicine, policy, and academia.
