As a major in our department, you can gain a broad understanding of the entire continent or specialize in a particular region. Our program introduces our students to everything from South Asian music and popular culture to the social and environmental implications of China’s rising economy.
The Asian Studies - Japanese Studies program offered by Furman University includes faculty from seven different academic departments, bringing a range of expertise and ideas to our department. We draw courses from history, literature, philosophy, anthropology, religion and others to ensure you’ll study Asia from every angle. At Furman, we believe an interdisciplinary approach will help you explore and understand the planet’s largest and most populous region.
From your first day of class through graduation, our faculty and staff will provide you with all the information and guidance you'll need to pursue a meaningful life and career.
