Asian Studies Graduate Certificate
About the Program
Asia is gaining increasing economic and strategic prominence in the world, and Asian countries have rich and fascinating cultures and heritages. The Asian Studies graduate certificate at the University of Cincinnati is an interdisciplinary program of study on Asia, with courses from the humanities and social sciences. The certificate is a useful additional credential for students obtaining graduate degrees in these disciplines, as well as for students in business, education, planning, engineering, law, and other areas. It is also open to those who already have an undergraduate degree but are currently not enrolled in a degree program at the University of Cincinnati.
The Asian Studies graduate certificate requires at least 12 credits and three core courses in Asian studies, including Aist 7050 – Survey of Asian Studies.
