Overview

The Global Asia Studies program of University of Toronto speaks to the uniqueness of UTSC as a campus and to Scarborough as a community. It aims to offer a cohesive and constantly renewed curriculum that presents an open and accessible interpretation of Asia and its place in the World. Faculty expertise extends into the fields of history, law, languages, literature, media, politics, religion, arts and visual culture.

The last few decades have witnessed the growing importance of China, India, South Korea, Japan, Singapore, and other parts of Asia in the world's geopolitical and economic spheres. Contacts and cultural exchanges between North America and Asia are increasing in scope in every sphere.

The diverse student population of UTSC is a case in point. Global Asia Studies aims to meet the rising demand for knowledge about Asian societies, cultures, and contemporary politics while also working to meet the distinct needs and experiences of UTSC students.
