Asian Studies is an interdisciplinary area of study focusing on modern Asian societies and cultures and their historical traditions. Asian Studies brings together various perspectives and approaches from culture, Economics, History, Politics, Sociology, literature and media to explore the changes that have happened in the Asian region over the last century, the integration of Asian countries in a global environment and Australia's relations with its Asian neighbours.
Students who wish to specialise in Asian studies are encouraged to learn a relevant Asian language.
