Asian Pacific American Studies (Minor)

Asian Pacific American Studies Minor - Curriculum Worksheet

The Asian Pacific American studies minor program focuses on the long history and rich contemporary experiences, cultures and communities of Asian Pacific Americans in the American Southwest. This minor benefits students pursuing careers involving the complex and rapidly changing Asian American and Pacific Islander populations and other culturally diverse populations.

Dedicated and inspiring faculty lead students through an interdisciplinary liberal arts program with emphasis on critical thinking, complex reasoning and solid writing skills, preparing them to engage in research that informs meaningful dialogues between policymakers, educators and society at large about Asian American and Pacific Islander communities. Students learn the challenges and opportunities of U.S. society and why race matters today, how people have worked together cooperatively to make positive change, and to identify solutions with creative, applied thought.

The Asian Pacific American studies program is housed in ASU's interdisciplinary School of Social Transformation, the only school of its kind in the United States.
