The Institute for Asian Studies was established in 1959. Our goal is to foster, facilitate, and enhance a global, multicultural, multiethnic, and multilingual education at St John's University. All programs within the Institute offer a comprehensive and critical study of the development of the Asian world, both as a whole and as individual societies, culturally and linguistically. Courses span the humanities and social sciences, and language courses in Chinese, Japanese, and Korean are offered at various levels. Our master's-level programs provide intensive research training in the field. The Institute for Asian Studies offers a minor in Asian Studies to complement any major with a global perspective on the Asian world.
