Undergraduate Asian Studies Programs

The Asian Studies major provides students the opportunity to study in depth one of the most important regions in the world. The importance of Asia derives from its large population, long history, complex and diverse societies and cultures, and rising economic significance. As the peoples and nations of the world become increasingly interconnected, successful leaders will benefit from a mastery of this key region.

Students will be expected to do the following:

  • Develop an understanding of the historical, cultural, political and economic forces that have shaped modern Asia
  • Master the rudiments of an Asian language
  • Experience cultural immersion through study abroad in at least one Asian country. Currently Rollins offers such experiences in Shanghai, Hong Kong and Osaka.
