ASIA Courses

The Liu Institute is the home for Asian Studies (ASIA) courses at Notre Dame. ASIA courses explore Asian ideas, individuals, and institutions across time. One-credit "gateway" courses introduce students to the breadth and depth of Asian Studies, while three-credit courses offer students a deep dive into the specific concepts and events that have and continue to shape Asia and the world. With an emphasis on learning beyond the classroom, specialized ASIA courses offer immersive experiences in Asia and elsewhere.

The Liu Institute's academic programs currently consist of the supplementary major in Asian Studies and the minor in Asian Studies. The courses offered under the ASIA course code fulfill various curricular requirements within the Asian Studies programs. Students from all majors and colleges are welcome to enroll in ASIA courses.
