Asian Studies Program

IUP Students at the Great Wall of China

The Asian Studies program is designed to increase awareness of the world’s largest, most populous, and most diverse continent. Its purpose is to combine an area focus with liberal studies requirements of the IUP curriculum. The program provides an opportunity to increase awareness and understanding of Asian cultures, environments, and peoples. It adds depth to the liberal studies portion of the students’ program, enhances job skills, and prepares students for post-graduate programs with area or regional themes.

“To study, and in the fullness of time to use what one has learned, is this not happiness? When friends come from afar, is this not joy?”

—Confucius Lun Yu 1.1
