Australia is uniquely placed to benefit from its close proximity to Asia. Becoming 'Asia literate' will help you both understand and benefit from the growing importance of Asia to Australia and the world.
You'll learn about diverse and interesting Asian countries and cultures, as well as the interactions between Australia and Asia.
This is a cross-disciplinary major, so that in addition to the range of units offered by Asian Studies staff, units can be undertaken over many areas including politics, philosophy, geography and art. Units from Japanese, Chinese and Indonesian studies can also form part of your Asian Studies major.
Plus you have the opportunity to complete a professional placement in Asia as part of your degree.
