Asian American Studies Department
AAST (Asian American Studies) focuses on the lives, history, and culture of Asian Americans from a comparative point of view. Specifically, we study persons who have immigrant and ancestral ties to any region of Asia and the Pacific.
Though there is no single Asian American identity, community, or experience, we believe that Asian American Studies provides a special opportunity for inquiry based on collaboration across fields and disciplines of academic study.
