Asian Studies

Students can minor in Asian Studies as part of UNC Asheville’s Interdisciplinary Studies Program. The minor combines courses in different disciplines that have a substantial Asian focus.

Students must complete at least 18 hours for the minor chosen from at least three disciplines. Appropriate courses may be substituted with the approval of Associate Professor of Chinese Studies and Language Jinhua Li, director of the Asian Studies Program.
