The Asian Studies program at Florida State University is designed to give students a well-rounded understanding of Asian culture. Courses are offered in the areas of political science, economics, sociology, public administration, urban and regional planning, history, anthropology, geography, humanities, language, literature, religion, art history, and music.  


Many students in the Asian Studies program at Florida State University anticipate careers in government, business, international organizations, journalism, or teaching. Other students use the program as a stepping stone into more specialized doctoral programs, by developing a language and area competence and through exposure to graduate coursework prior to entering a PhD program in one of the disciplines represented by the participating Asian Studies faculty.

Study Abroad Programs

Asian Studies students are encouraged to participate in the University's summer study program in China or in another appropriate program. 


Asian Studies students have the opportunity to do an internship designed to provide practical experience that will complement traditional coursework. Interns can expect to gain valuable work experience, develop professional skills, cultivate valuable contacts and investigate career options. The internship allows students to receive academic credit for internship placement in approved agencies and organizations. Information about internships and application materials are available on the International Studies Organization site. All internships must be approved by the program director the semester before the internship takes place.
