The Graduate Certificate in Asian Studies is a graduate-level interdisciplinary program housed in the College of Arts and Sciences. It allows you to learn more about the peoples of China, India, and Japan from the perspectives of art history, geography, history, religious studies, political science, sociology, and theatre arts. The fifteen-hour program may be completed as a “stand alone” program, or in conjunction with other graduate programs, for example the MA in History or Political Science, or the PhD in Art History or Humanities.
You must take 15 credit hours in graduate courses with an Asian emphasis. At least three of the five required courses must be at the 600 level, and the five courses must be drawn from at least three of the following disciplines: Anthropology, Art History, Classical and Modern Languages, Geography, History, Humanities, Political Science, Sociology, Theatre Arts, or Women’s and Gender Studies. A minimum of three credit hours must be in the Division of Humanities (exclusive of language courses), and at least 3 hours must be in the Division of Social Sciences.
To complete the Graduate Certificate, you must demonstrate reading knowledge in one of the following: Chinese, Japanese, or another language designated as an Asian language by the Program Director.
With the approval of the Program Director, an internship in a community or local business may be substituted for three(3) credit hours of classwork. To be eligible for this substitution, the internship must involve work that is primarily connected with Asia or Asian-Americans in some way.
