Department of American Cultural Studies, Interdisciplinary Studies
The program in Asian American Studies provides for a coherent, integrated and concentrated investigation of peoples of Asian heritage in North America. It also examines separate experiences of Asian Americans and their positions as ethnic minorities in American society and politics. This is accomplished through concentration on Asian American history and its place in North America, situating the literatures and other cultural publications of Asian Americans in a broad context, and engaging contemporary issues with appropriate analytical tools.
For more information contact Dr. Midori Takagi, coordinator of the Asian American Studies minor concentration, or Dr. Lawrence J. Estrada, Director of American Cultural Studies.
A grade of C- or better is required for a student’s major or minor courses, and supporting courses for majors and minors.
