Asian Studies Program uri icon

Asia is a dynamic force in the emerging world culture. Its economic and political impact is significant. Now, as it has been for centuries in the past, it is a source of innovative ideas and products. Consequently, understanding its contributions to global culture is imperative. Recognizing the appeal of Asian cultures and their global importance, East Carolina University (ECU) proposes to create a multidisciplinary Asian Studies Program. This program will explore, from the perspectives of various disciplines, a variety of Asian cultures using a three pronged approach.
