Asian American Studies School of Interdisciplinary Studies

Asian American Studies

The undergraduate Asian American Studies Program, now within American Studies at Purdue offers students the opportunity to pursue a minor in Asian American Studies. The program focuses on the complex cultural heritage of Asian Americans and provides students a way to deepen their understanding of issues such as ethnicity, gender, identity, and racial history, linking the Asian American experience to the development of America and its multicultural consciousness. While the program focuses on the experience of Asians in the United States, it can also give students a perspective on the Asian American experience within transnational and global contexts. As an interdisciplinary minor, it encourages students to pursue issues of Asian Americanness within fields such as history, literature, sociology, and art.
