It’s simple. True to the liberal arts fashion, the Asian Studies program from Saint Mary's College of Maryland includes coursework from a variety of fields, such as: Art History, English, History, International Languages, Music, Philosophy/Religious Studies, and more! 


Outside the classroom, majors of the Asian Studies program from Saint Mary's College of Maryland get the opportunity to experience Asian culture hands-on. You can even study abroad in an Asian country! You’ll also work closely with your professors in small class sizes-- something larger universities can’t offer.


Moreover, Asian Studies courses may be found in the departments of:

  • Art History
  • Economics
  • History
  • English
  • International Languages and Cultures
  • Music
  • Philosophy and Religious Studies
  • Political Science
  • Psychology
  • Theater, Film and Media Studies

This “area studies” approach demands that students take an active and conscious part in designing their Asian Studies program.

The Asian Studies faculty strongly recommends that students anchor their study of Asia in language study and study abroad. In addition to Chinese language offerings on-campus, St. Mary’s offers a study abroad program at Fudan University in Shanghai, one of China’s most distinguished universities. Students may pursue the study of other Asian languages through study abroad programs in India, Thailand, Japan, or other Asian countries; alternatively, students may choose to attend language programs at other universities and colleges in the U.S. Any study of Asia and its cultures is not complete without the study of an Asian language.

Participation in the study area is possible in any major, and in addition to broadening student horizons in the liberal arts, it provides excellent preparation for a future career in the U.S. Foreign Service, the United Nations, international non-governmental organizations, multinational business, and advanced academic studies.
