Overview

The Asian Studies major at Manhattanville College brings together some of the world’s most interesting and diverse regions — East, South, Southeast, and Central Asia; The Middle East; North Africa; and the Indian Ocean. Together, these regions make up a vast segment of the non-Western world. The major approaches these regions through interconnections between places and peoples; the commonalities that bind them; and its complex diversities. 

AMENA provides students with the opportunity to complete an interdisciplinary major or minor, drawing on the expertise of faculty members across various departments. Students may choose from courses that include languages, Asia-specific content courses across the disciplines, and thematic courses that introduce students to non-Western discourses that are crucial to understanding the region.
