Is there a Major in Asian Pacific American Studies?
At the moment, there is no major in APAS. However, there is a concentration on Race and Ethnicity within the interdisciplinary American Studies major that allows you to study Asian Pacific America alongside other racial and ethnic groups in the U.S. Almost all APAS courses count towards American Studies, with the exception of courses on modern Asia. Please contact American Studies (email@example.com) or visit their website for further information.
Note: Prof. Chong is on leave during the 2013-14 academic year and will not be on campus. Please contact her by email (firstname.lastname@example.org) if you have any questions.
