Global Studies Common Core


Common Core:


All concentrators, regardless of the track, are required to take the following:

Note:


AMES 493  fulfills both the MWR and CPR for the concentration. The common core will fulfill 7 credits.

* For example, if a student’s track is East Asian Studies, he or she must complete a 3-credit course that focuses on Southeast Asia, South Asia, the Middle East, or any other Asia-related course outside of East Asian Studies.

Tracks:


The remaining 30 credits are to come from courses that are specific to each of the two tracks that form the concentration. These are described below. Consult the AMES website for a list of courses.

Major Writing Requirement (MWR)


The major writing requirement is satisfied by completing AMES 493 with a grade of C- or better.

Major Computer Proficiency Requirement (CPR)


The computing proficiency requirement is satisfied by completing AMES 493 with a grade of C- or better.

Lines 2 and 3: Advanced Language Courses (Choose Two)


Students are required to take two courses beyond the 202-level in one East Asian language, or 202-level proficiency in two languages (two East Asian languages or one East Asian language and another language from the AMES region, e.g. Arabic). Although the College is not currently able to offer languages beyond Chinese and Japanese, a student could count another East Asian language (for example, Korean) provided they can demonstrate proficiency through accredited academic courses taken domestically or abroad. The courses in this category will total 6 credits.

Line 7: Any course from lines 4, 5, or 6 (Choose One)


Lines 8, 9, 10 and 11: Electives (Choose Four)


The remaining 12 credits are to come from courses that are specific to East Asian Studies, chosen in consultation with a member of the East Asian Studies faculty to form a coherent program of study.

Line 12: Course on Middle East or South Asia (Choose One)


This course is chosen in consultation with a member of the East Asian Studies faculty to form a coherent program of study.

Note:


Students with a track in East Asian Studies who wish to minor in Chinese Language and Literature (offered by the department of Modern Languages and Literatures) will be allowed to apply up to 12 additional credit hours in Chinese Language and Literature beyond the current 48 credit hours limit in the major.
