The Center for Asian Studies (CAS) was established at the University of Georgia in order to promote research, teaching, and service initiatives focused on international and cross-cultural issues engaging Asia and Asian cultures 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. These programs primarily focus on Asian language acquisition, Area Studies, and disciplines across the Arts and Humanities, but the Center for Asian Studies also aims to incorporate the curricula and faculties from Law, Business, Agriculture, Education, Journalism, Veterinary Medicine and Sciences. At the forefront of the Center for Asian Studies Academic Programs is the opportunity for undergraduates to complete a Certificate in Asian Studies as part of their academic degree. In the near future, it is hoped that additional programs will include an undergraduate Minor in Asian Studies, and aspirationally, a fully articulated Academic Major in Asian Studies.
