A minor in Asian Studies enhances the education of students in business, science, and the liberal arts, especially those students working on a major in business. Not only does this minor teacher students more about histories, cultures, languages, and societies throughout the Asian region that continue to grow in influence and significance, but it prepares students to work and live in various Asian countries. The minor itself requires an interdisciplinary approach to the study of Asia, providing a broad understanding of the complexity of the region while respecting the uniqueness of each country and its culture.
- It is highly recommended that students holding a minor in Asian Studies engage in a study abroad experience in an Asian country either as a member of one of the Lee University sponsored trips or by an individually arranged trip.
The Asian Council provides a venue for members to learn about the cultures and languages of Asia and creates an environment that will foster multilingual and multicultural communication, as well as promoting knowledge of current political and social issues in Asia.
Tuesdays at 8:00PM in the International Student Office in the Mayfield Annex
