Prerequisite: AST/HIS 243 or AST/HIS 229 or AST/SOC/WGS 240 or PSC 250 or permission of instructor

Through examining a key theme in Asian Studies, students will develop both a deeper appreciation for an aspect of Asian culture and a better understanding for the various methodologies that scholars of Asia employ in analyzing complex societies. By reading key primary documents and secondary material, students will develop a picture of the interrelated issues connected to the theme of the seminar. Students will also engage in individual research projects related to the course’s chosen theme. May be repeated for credit, provided the topic differs from those previously studied. For clarification on transcripts and degree audits, a China-focused section would be listed as AST 325C, a Japan-focused section would be AST 325J, and a section on other areas of Asia would be AST 325A.
