Advising Information for Current Students

Asian Studies B.A.

Because the Asian Studies Major is interdisciplinary, it is important that students meet regularly with the Asian Studies advisor, and attend the group advising meetings each semester (Early October in the fall, and late March in the spring). Since the courses for Asian Studies come from different departments and colleges throughout the university, it is vital that students attend the meetings and meet with an advisor to select the best courses for their schedules in order to graduate on time. Together, we can design a program that fits your interests best, and allows you to explore the topics and themes that most appeal to you. We can also figure out when it would be best for you to study abroad and/or do one of our internships in Asia, while still allowing you to graduate on time.

Due to the Family Education Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA), University staff can provide academic information about a student only to the student themselves. This includes items such as cumulative grade point average, grades, and academic standing. There is however, a great deal of general information that can be shared with the support system of a student.
