Asian Studies

The Asian Studies minor is an interdisciplinary program with a flexible curriculum that emphasizes the development of knowledge and analytical approaches needed to understand the emergence of Asia in the twenty-first century. This twelve-credit minor program draws from numerous courses offered at LIU Brooklyn that focus on the history, cultures, societies, economics, politics, arts and contemporary issues pertaining to the Asian continent. Cross-listed courses for the Asian Studies Minor Program have included those from sociology-anthropology, history, art, dance, media art, music, philosophy and economics.

The Asian Studies Minor certificate offers the student an addition to your diploma that many in the business community and world of higher education will find attractive in this age where the ascendance of Asia is a major driving force in a globalized economy. Led by China and India, the countries of the Asian continent will continue to play a greater role in the world as their economies surge throughout the foreseeable future. LIU students who want to be a part of this ascendence would be well advised to use this opportunity to add Asia to their list of interests.
