Interdisciplinary Emphasis in Asian Studies
All students majoring in the Asian languages are strongly encouraged to augment these majors with the Interdisciplinary Emphasis in Asian Studies (IEAS) offered by the Asian Studies program, thereby enhancing their major with a deeper and broader comprehension of Asian cultures and societies.  Other than the two language units and international experience requirements for IEAS, courses taken for the major may not be applied to the IEAS designation.
