University of Georgia's Center for Asian Studies (CAS) promotes cross-campus research, teaching, and service initiatives concerning Asia, both past and present.  


The Center for Asian Studies strives to create, nurture, and manage academic programs across campus and exchanges with Asian academic institutions for students, faculty, and appropriate staff members. Although the primary focus is on Asian language acquisition and disciplines in the Arts and Humanities within UGA's Franklin College of Arts and Sciences, CAS also strives to make connections to the Schools of Law, Business, Agriculture, Education, Journalism, Public Health, and Veterinary Medicine and Sciences, among others. The Center also offers an opportunity for undergraduates to complete a Certificate in Asian Studies as part of their academic degree. 

Thank you for visiting our website, which aims to introduce visitors to activities and events sponsored by CAS here at the University of Georgia. We welcome your comments and suggestions, and we encourage and seek your support in furthering the Center’s goals.
