To achieve these goals, the Institute of Asian Studies initiates and coordinates the development and operation of special programs, and administers a minor and major in Asian Studies.The Asian Studies major is an interdisciplinary major extending beyond the College of Arts and Letters, across the College of Business. It explores and maintains cooperative relationships with higher education institutions and other organizations within the United States and throughout Asia in order to enhance Asian Studies programs in this university and region.
