Asian Studies majors have access to a wide spectrum of facilities and programs across campus and around the world. The Center for Asian Studies organizes Asia-related events on campus and provides several scholarship opportunities for undergraduates studying Asia. The Program for Teaching East Asia (TEA) sponsors innovative workshops for teachers of East Asia. Asian Studies students have access to state-of-the-art language instruction technology at the Anderson Language Technology Center (ALTEC) and access to the East Asian Collection, located in Norlin Library, the largest collection of East Asian materials in the Rocky Mountain region. In addition, there are over 110 faculty members on the CU-Boulder campus who either specialize in or have research interests in Asia.
One of the most enriching experiences available to any student is studying abroad. The University offers more than 320 programs throughout the world, including 42 in various locations throughout Cambodia, China, India, Indonesia, Japan, Mongolia, South Korea, Taiwan, Thailand, and Vietnam. All Asian Studies students are strongly encouraged to study abroad; living a language and culture is the best way to learn about them. You can earn credit that counts as if you had taken courses on the Boulder campus, in some cases fulfilling major and core curriculum requirements. You may spend a few weeks to a full academic year abroad, depending on the program you select. Prior language study or other prerequisites are necessary for some programs, so early planning for study abroad is essential. Further information about study abroad is available from Education Abroad.
