Asian Studies majors are advised by Noriko Horiguchi, Chair of Asian Studies.  Students are responsible for contacting their advisors to make an advising appointment.  Preparation is one of the keys to a successful advising session. Student should bring DARS report for the Asian Studies major and the appropriate catalog year to the session.  This report will clearly show which requirements you have completed, which remain to be filled, and all courses that are not being used to fill any requirement.  During your advising session, your advisor will determine whether you have any courses that may be petitioned to fulfill requirements.

Declaring Asian Studies as a Major

Students may declare a major or minor by going to Arts & Sciences Advising.   It is important that you do so once you have decided to major in Asian Studies.  Only when you have declared the major, can your Asian Studies advisor access and print out your academic history. With the records access policy that the university has recently instituted, Asian Studies advisors no longer have access to the academic histories of students who are not majors.
