college of arts and sciences

College of Arts and Sciences' programs form the core of our curricular activity, but on these pages you will find that student and faculty interest in Asian Studies at Boston College stretches well beyond those boundaries. It includes faculty and staff at each of the schools comprising the University, an active collection of student groups, and a series of international partners and study abroad opportunities. Please use these pages to gather information about the program and its requirements, learn about the research and teaching of our community of scholars, search out the latest listings of our events, and explore Asian topics beyond the campus.


Boston College Asian Studies uses social media to highlight news and events, and to promote social and professional networking.
