A Map of Asia









The nations and cultures of Asia present a uniquely challenging and diverse subject of study. Some of the great human civilizations emerged in Asia, and today the continent is home to some of the world's most vigorous economies and fascinating political systems. At Colgate, students are encouraged to learn more about Asia in its own terms, through direct confrontation with Asia's languages, literature's, histories, religions and arts. 

The Asian Studies program at Colgate focuses on India, China and Japan, and offers courses on Southeast Asia and Asians in America as well. Students choose to concentrate on one of the three countries through an interdisciplinary course of study grounded in a particular discipline. In this way students acquire a broad knowledge of an Asian culture and an ability to analyze the culture using the tools of an academic discipline. 

The program also offers minors in Indian, Chinese, Japanese and Southeast Asian studies.
