Why Study Asian Studies?
American businesses, governmental and nonprofit organizations are deeply involved in Asia, yet there are not enough American professionals who are knowledgeable about the region. A degree or certificate in Asian studies, especially when combined with another field of study, offers a useful credential in an increasingly global marketplace.
The Asian Studies program provides a firm foundation for careers in research institutions, business, industry, federal and local government, and nonprofit organizations. It also prepares you for further graduate training or a degree in business, journalism, international affairs, education, or law.
In addition, as Japan has been recognized as the foremost foreign investor in Ohio and over 120 Japanese-owned companies call Greater Cincinnati home, our Asian Studies program is responding to increasing local demand for bilingual specialists.
Students of the program have gone on to careers such as:
- Teaching in an Asian country
- International or multinational executive
- Research analyst
- Immigration agent
- Public policymaker
- Law enforcement
