Asian Studies

The Carthage Asian Studies program is an interdisciplinary program that broadly trains students in several critical and methodological approaches to the study of Asia. Carthage offers both a major and minor in Asian Studies.

Majors and Minors Offered

Major:
Asian Studies

Minor:
Asian Studies

Students develop linguistic, cultural, and disciplinary competencies in fields as diverse as modern languages, biology, history, religion, geography, and others.

These constantly evolving competencies are learned and practiced within the specific geographical context of Asia, preparing our majors and minors for a diverse array of careers involving Asia.

Our graduates are currently working in many fields and industries, both in the United States as well as in Asia; while others have won competitive national scholarships, such as the Fulbright Scholarships, enabling them to deepen their studies in Asia.
