Careers in AS

Whether you’re interested in visual and performing arts, religion, gender, international development, global health, literature and languages, political science, economics, communications, history, human rights, or philosophy, the opportunities for careers using a degree in Asian Studies are vast. Students who major in Asian Studies land jobs in international business, government service, journalism, non-governmental organizations, teaching, and the arts. Some go on to professional schools in such fields as management, finance, diplomacy, and law. Others go on to do graduate work in a variety of disciplines and pursue academic careers teaching new generations of Asian Studies majors and minors.

The Asian Studies major can be an important part of a Liberal Arts Bachelor’s degree. The critical thinking, communication, writing, and analytical skills you develop during your AS courses will serve you well in your future, regardless of where life takes you.
