Welcome to the Asian American Studies Program

The Asian American Studies Program supports courses and campus programming that highlight the complex experiences of Americans of Asian ancestry. In courses, students learn about the extensive critical work that surrounds the understanding of this fast-growing, complex, and important population. Students also gain opportunities to work with faculty whose research is focused on this topic from a variety of perspectives, and think about how knowledge is connected to social justice issues that include and extend beyond the AAPI community. Campus programming includes sponsorship of guest speakers, events, and student activities that are of interest to the AAPI community.

For more information about the program, please contact the director Wan Sonya Tang.
