Asian Studies Program

The study of Asian cultures gives insight into countries that are becoming increasingly important in world affairs.

At St. Mary’s, students receive an interdisciplinary approach into the rising cultures of the East, in preparation for jobs in U.S. Foreign Service, international non-governmental organizations, and the United Nations.

Students will become proficient in an Asian language, acquire in-depth knowledge on the subject from the viewpoint of three other disciplines, study Asian culture, politics, economics, religion, and literature, and acquire first-hand experience of Asian culture through traveling, living and learning in an Asian environment.
