Asian American Studies

The Asian American Studies program will enable students to develop critical thinking skills, competencies, and sensibilities to appreciate, contribute, and thrive in a culturally diverse world. The goal of the Asian American Studies program is to promote better understanding of Asian Pacific Americans and their contributions to U.S. society. The program is structured with several objectives in mind:

· To provide students with a full and comparative understanding of Asian American and transpacific historical experiences and contemporary social issues in the United States.

· To promote study of, and engagement with, the variety of Asian American and transnational communities throughout the Sacramento region.

· To prepare students for graduate work in Ethnic Studies with a concentration in Asian American Studies.

· To encourage students to enter professional career paths where knowledge of the Asian American experience is important, particularly in education, health and human services, government, business, and law.
