Application Code 287

For curriculum information, contact the English/World Languages Division–Room DH-239–443-518-1540.

This curriculum is designed for students who want to use an interdisciplinary approach in the pursuit of knowledge. Asian Studies is designed to transfer to a four-year institution where students would further their studies in a similar concentration. The curriculum gives students the flexibility to pursue a major interest and, at the same time, to fulfill the lower-division general education requirements for transfer to a baccalaureate degree program. Students should seek guidance from advisors and the institution to which they intend to transfer to determine appropriate coursework for specific transfer programs.
