Beloit College prides itself on the strength of its innovative and interdisciplinary Asian studies minor. Characterized by both the breadth and depth of its course offerings, the program studies the diverse cultures and societies of Asia: their past, their present, and their future. Beloit graduates with Asian studies experience have found rewarding careers in many fields: journalism, academia, government, law, and business. The Asian studies advisor has information on careers and assists students in applying to graduate programs in Asian studies or disciplinary programs with an Asian focus.
Resources and Opportunities
Beloit College offers its students excellent opportunities to study in Asia through its own exchange programs and through programs offered by other institutions. Students regularly study in China, Hong Kong, and Japan. In recent years, they have also studied in India, Mongolia, Nepal, and Thailand. The Beloit College Center for Language Studies (CLS) offers intensive nine-week summer programs in Chinese and Japanese (and other languages). This demanding program requires a high degree of motivation but provides rapid language acquisition in a small, personal setting. Both the Logan Museum of Anthropology and the Wright Museum of Art at Beloit College have impressive holdings related to Asian culture and civilization.
