Asian Studies LogoThe Asian Studies Program at California State University, Sacramento is an interdisciplinary program that seeks to prepare our students for a future in an economically and politically important and inter-connected Pacific Basin by providing an in-depth understanding of Asia from a political, cultural, and historical perspective. Graduates of the program utilize their knowledge and training to continue their studies at graduate institutions or through employment in government, business, or education. The program actively increases the awareness of Asia on our campus and is a resource for the community in the capital region through its support for student clubs, faculty colloquia, and cultural activities.
