Asian Languages & Civilizations

Our faculty and students draw on a variety of disciplines to explore the histories and cultures of the peoples of Asia.

We study the languages, societies and cultures of major civilizations that stretch from the Arab World to Japan. Students expand their knowledge and challenge assumptions about this large and vital part of the world.
