*** SCHEDULING UPDATE IN LIGHT OF COVID-19 ***
CONSEQUENT TO THE CANCELLATION OF FACE TO FACE CLASSES AT UGA, UNFORTUNATELY ALL SPRING SEMESTER EVENTS ORGANIZED BY THE CENTER FOR ASIAN STUDIES ARE POSTPONED. WE HOPE TO BRING OUR FULL PROGRAM OF ACTIVITIES BACK FOR NEXT ACADEMIC YEAR - PLEASE CHECK BACK IN WITH THIS WEBSITE FOR UPDATES
Welcome to the UGA Center for Asian Studies ! 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.
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.
