Welcome to Asian Studies
A growing demand exists for Americans to become more familiar with Asia in business, journalism, government, education, information technology and service. In the age of global economy and satellite communication, the Pacific rim nations have become America’s close partners in multinational business, diplomacy and cultural exchange. Asia, the most populated region of the world, has developed some of the world’s fastest and most productive economies.
BGSU is one of the few Ohio universities that offer an Asian Studies major leading to the Bachelor of Arts degree. Students gain a broad knowledge of the culture and societies of East Asia, South Asia and Southeast Asia; an in-depth knowledge of one of the East Asian countries (Japan, China, and Korea), and the basic conversational and reading skills of an Asian language. Upon completion of the program, students have a broad interdisciplinary, international and comparative understanding of Asia and the United States, and a functional ability in an Asian language that will enrich their professional and personal lives.
