Asian Studies

Asian Studies is one of the geographical specializations offered to International Studies students.  Students will further select to either focus in East Asia, South Asia or Eurasia. The specialization seeks to educate students on the role of Asia in the global world. Students are able to take language courses in Intensive Chinese, Japanese or Arabic.  Students will also take political science and history courses specific to the study of Asia. Students must complete, at minimum, one semester abroad. Though students are not restricted to study abroad in Asia, TCNJ provides many opportunities for semester programs in Asia.
