Asian Studies Minor


Return to The Curricula Return to: The Curricula

This interdisciplinary minor can be declared through the Department of International Studies and Political Science .

The purpose of the Asian Studies Minor is to support the study of Asia on Post and develop "citizens of character who anticipate, respond, and lead in a complex and changing world." This academic experience is designed to rigorously educate cadets on the affairs of East, Central, South, and Southeast Asia. Cadets can design their program of study to focus on a particular country, such as China, or enroll in courses that cover a variety of topics in order gain a rich understanding of the region. 

In the recent past, a number of departments have offered classes that can fulfill the requirements of the Asian Studies minor, including International Studies, History, Modern Language and Cultures, and Economics and Business.  Cadets who pursue majors in these departments are especially encouraged to consider this opportunity. For information about courses and plans of study, please see LTC Howard Sanborn.
