The Asian Studies Program is designed for students interested in careers or graduate work in fields where the knowledge of Asia and the ability to communicate and work in a multicultural setting are essential. The goal of the program is to foster the understanding and awareness of Asia that is critical to leaders and citizens of the 21st century. As the closest US continental trading and transportation hub to Asia and with its large and growing Asian American communities, Seattle is among the nation’s top metropolitan centers that have deep economic, cultural, and intellectual links with Asia.
Program highlights include
- International learning with an Asian focus
- Asian language proficiency
- Talented and dedicated faculty
- And a wide range of course and career options.
Donations to the Asian Studies Program fund will be used to help students achieve academic excellence, such as providing students with small grants to cover some expenses they might have when completing projects and research or attending conferences to present their work.
