Asian American Studies is an interdepartmental, interdisciplinary program devoted to the study of the Asian American experience within the larger context of an increasingly diverse American society. Although the primary focus of the minor is upon Asian Americans, attention is also given to the study of the global context, especially Asia, since this larger context informs the Asian American experience.
Completion of the minor requires students to complete fifteen credits at the 2000-level and above by completion of Groups A, B, and C below; but with consent of the minor advisor, one course from Group D may be substituted for a course in Group C. No other substitutions are permitted. A maximum of three credits towards the minor may be transfer credits of courses equivalent to University of Connecticut courses.
