Asian Pacific American Studies Minor

Asian Pacific American Studies Minor is designed for students who wish to focus their studies on the diverse social, historical, and cultural experiences of the various Asian Pacific American (APA) groups residing in the United States.

Through study abroad programs, the minor will also provide the student with the opportunity to engage in comparative studies of the Asian homelands with the overseas Diaspora communities. In this manner, the minor will stimulate an exciting and challenging exploration of the histories, racial experiences, and contributions – as well as the social, cultural, political and intellectual developments – characteristic of Asian Pacific Americans.
