    Description of the Program 
    The program in Asian Studies promotes and supports teaching and research in Asian Studies at UGA and throughout Georgia. This undergraduate certificate program is comparative and interdisciplinary. It is designed for students who wish to specialize or gain expertise in Asian Studies. It draws curriculum from a wide range of disciplines, including anthropology, international studies, languages, linguistics, comparative literature, history, and religion. The undergraduate certificate program in Asian Studies requires 18 hours of course work, including (a) completion of RELI 1002 Religions of India, China, and Japan or HIST 2600 Tradition and Change in East Asian History or an equivalent course approved by the Director of the Center for Asian Studies; (b) at least one 3–hour course in each of the four core areas: history, geography, international studies; religion; comparative literature and the arts; one 3–hour advanced language course; (c) one 3–hour elective selected from a list of courses not used to satisfy any of the requirements above; a relevant study abroad program; and a research paper to be used as a capstone to the certificate. 

    Educational Goal 
    The educational goal of the Asian Certificate is to initiate, strengthen, and facilitate interdisciplinary research in Asian Studies at UGA, facilitate cooperation between and among faculty and students with expertise and interest in Asian Studies, train students in theory, methods, and research relating to Asian Studies, and promote Asian Studies and diversity awareness beyond the University.
