The Minor


The Minor in South and Southeast Asian Studies allows interested students to acquire a solid introduction to the culture and traditions of the region.



One course selected from among the following gateway courses: South Asia 1A, South Asia 1B, Southeast Asia 10A or Southeast Asia 10B,


Five additional letter-graded Upper Division courses, totaling 20 units, with a minimum 2.0 GPA.

Note that these can include:

— no more than one course from outside of the department;

— and no more than two upper division language courses.


Courses offered by other departments, but that are cross-listed with SSEAS, do count as SSEAS department courses for the purposes of the minor. Non-cross-listed courses offered by other departments may be counted toward the minor upon petition to the Faculty Undergraduate Student Advisor.
