Asian Studies at Weber State offers a Minor in Asian Studies, supports the Foreign Language Department’s Japanese Minor, oversees courses in the Middle East Track, and cooperates with the BIS Program to offer a Bachelor’s degree “BIS Asian Studies Concentration.” Asian Studies courses are offered through a number of cooperating departments including History, Political Science and Philosophy, Geography, Foreign Language, English, Honors, Sociology and Anthropology, Visual Arts, Health and Physical Education, and others.

  • Grade Requirements: A grade of “C” or above in each course used toward the Asian Studies Minor (a grade of C- is not acceptable).
  • Credit Hour Requirements: Fifteen credit hours of courses must be taken from at least four of the areas listed under Course Requirements for Minor.

Courses taken which are part of the student’s major will not count as fulfillment of the minor requirement.

Should other courses relating specifically to Asia or the Middle East, either of an experimental or of a permanent nature, be added to the curriculum, these courses will be accepted as part of the Asian Studies Minor. To be a part of the Asian Studies curriculum, a course must have two-thirds Asian content.
