Asian/Asian American Studies

The Asian/Asian American Studies program at Syracuse University was formed as a result of student activism for over a decade. A faculty and student committee was formed in 2008 to develop the program and minor; the proposal for the minor was submitted in 2009 and approved in the spring of 2010. Currently over 30 courses offered on campus and abroad contribute to this minor.
