About

The Asian American Studies program of the University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA) provides a general introduction for students who anticipate advanced work at the graduate level or careers in research, public service, and community work related to Asian and Pacific Islander Americans.

Overview

About the Major

As an interdisciplinary field, Asian American Studies examines the histories, contemporary realities, and diverse experiences of Asian and Pacific Islander Americans. The topical range includes immigration and diaspora, community work and development, race, gender, and generational dynamics, social activism, cultural production, political participation, and transnational encounters.

The goals of our education are: (1) to mount teaching missions that enable students to learn, to think, and to perform in a nurturing and intellectually stimulating environment; (2) to equip students with theoretical and practical knowledge, as well as analytical and communicative skills, which can reflect the multi-disciplinary strengths of our faculty; and (3) to serve student needs for personal enrichment by preparing them either for advanced graduate studies or for life after college as citizens, professionals, community workers, political leaders, and entrepreneurs.

The Asian American Studies program of the University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA) is a designated capstone major. Students are required to complete either a community-based applied team research project or an independent scholarly or creative expression project. Those who select the community-based project are expected to use their scholarly knowledge and analytical skills to examine problems facing Asian and Pacific Islander American populations, think creatively and innovatively about evidence-based solutions, and to produce reports that benefit community stakeholders. Those who select to design and complete an independent scholarly or creative expression project pursue a key idea or theme of personal interest that is related to their prior coursework and to the experiences and realities of Asian and Pacific Islander Americans. Through their capstone work, all students are expected to demonstrate their skills in using and synthesizing knowledge gained in disparate courses and communicating effectively their findings and conclusions in a final paper, report, or project and in a public forum.
