Students may minor in Asian American studies in consultation with the AASP Director or advisers. A minor consists of 12 credits in Asian American studies. Contact the AASP office for a list of qualifying courses. An Asian American studies minor will enhance the degree and career of students. It pro­vides them with special competence in the histo­ries of the diverse communities of the Asian diaspora and the critical skills with which to understand complex social issues and demographic changes. The AASP prepares students for careers in education, government and community organiza­tions; for entrance to professional schools in areas such as law, social work, and urban planning; and for graduate study and research in the social sci­ences and humanities. Students majoring in nurs­ing or the health sciences, psychology, political science, sociology, history, business, literature, art and many other areas will find Asian American studies useful, particularly when their interests include activities within Asian American communities or issues that affect Asians and Asian Americans.
