Asian Studies

The Asian studies program is interdisciplinary with courses offered in seven academic disciplines: art, English, history and political science, management/economics, foreign languages, religious studies, and theatre arts. Successful completion of the Asian studies minor will appear on your official college transcript.

Study Abroad Opportunities

Asian studies students are strongly encouraged to study abroad during their sophomore, junior, or senior year. Through Nazareth’s Center for International Education, you can participate in a student-exchange program with Osaka University in Japan and Rajagiri Institute in India. Additional programs in China, Korea, and Vietnam are currently under development.

You may also be able to combine study abroad with experiential learning. A growing number of internships and service learning programs are available to Nazareth students who study abroad. These opportunities are an excellent means of gaining valuable professional experience, giving you an additional edge as you pursue a professional career or further education.
