Asian Studies

Return to: College of Liberal Arts

The Asian Studies minor is designed to give students a broad background in the philosophies, histories, arts, and politics of Asian cultures, particularly to serve students who are interested in comparative cultural studies or careers in international business, government service, or teaching overseas. As world economies continue to globalize, with China, Taiwan, Japan, and other Asian regions playing central roles, it becomes increasingly important for the emerging workforce to have some knowledge of the diversity of Asian thought and social practices. The UTEP Asian Studies minor strives to fill this need.
