Saint Louis University's Asian studies minor introduces students to the Chinese language and gives them insight into the culture and history of the Asian region.
As a rising region of the world, Asia is generating many economic opportunities, undergoing demographic expansion and growing technological connectivity. The 15-credit minor is open to all majors but is especially complementary to those studying political science, international studies, Chinese, theology and international business.
This interdisciplinary program connects students to professors in departments across the University including theology, history, film studies and business.
