Asian/Asian American Studies at Miami University
The Asian/Asian American (AAA) Studies minor provides a critical understanding of important issues connecting and affecting Asia and communities of Asian descent in the U.S. and in the diasporas. Its innovative course of study moves beyond object-oriented area studies and nationalistic identity politics to feature transnational and transcultural approaches to:
- political-economic relations
- historical and socio-cultural formations
- ethno-linguistic and religious practices
- literary and artistic representations
The AAA minor enables students to productively engage issues of sameness and difference and to critically reflect on their relations to an increasingly interdependent world.
The AAA minor, which may be used to fulfill the Thematic Sequence requirement, requires the completion of a minimum of 18 semester hours, normally 6 courses, with a cumulative GPA of 2.0 in the program. It's possible that students could use other courses not listed below to count toward the AAA minor.
For additional questions about the program or about next year's course offerings, please contact the program's interim director, Quanyu Huang (huangq@MiamiOH.edu).
