Bachelor of Arts in Asian Studies
The Asian Studies program at Kennesaw State explores diverse topics and themes on linguistic, literary, cultural, philosophic-religious, aesthetic, social, institutional-political, educational and other related spheres of Asian people and civilization. The program also endeavors to explain the complex interactions among them in terms of both tradition and transformation. Some emphasis is placed not only on the cultural diversity, unity and achievements of Asian countries but also on the comparative and interdisciplinary ways of promoting a broader and deeper understanding of the East. This enterprise may shed new light on Western civilizations, histories, traditions, cultures and modern changes.

In light of recent and ongoing violence against Asians and Asian Americans in this country, the Interdisciplinary Studies Department recognizes that knowledge is the ultimate weapon against sexist, racist ignorance. As such, we have curated a list of resources to educate on the history of Asians in the U.S. and on anti-racist pedagogies. Click here to view these resources.
