Asian Studies Awards
Each year, the Asian Studies Program presents two awards, one to the Outstanding Asian Studies minor and the other to the best research project or creative activity submitted by an Alabama undergraduate (minors and non-minors). Both awards include a small scholarship. If you have a research paper or project from this semester or a previous semester, check out the details for submitting for the award on the Asian Studies website. The deadline is Friday, January 29, 2016, and submissions should be sent, with a cover page that includes the undergraduate's name, CWID, email address, and a 3-4 sentence summary of the paper or project to Awards are presented at an Asian Studies Honors Week lecture each April. (Last year's winners pictured above).

Spring Semester Courses
Alabama offers many different ways to study Asia on campus. Some courses still have seats, and some satisfy core requirements. For Spring 2016, you can still enroll in REL 220 Survey of Asian Religions (HU core) and many of the Asian languages offered. Upper level seats are available in courses like ANT 450.003 Gender and Modernity in Asia and CHI 350 Chinese Literature in Translation. The complete list of Spring 2016 courses is available on the Asian Studies website.  

What are you doing this summer?

Consider studying in Asia this summer! UA has a variety of faculty led trips (Japan, China, India, Cambodia) that connect to different programs across UA, and you can also search for other programs that accept UA students through Capstone International. It is never too early to begin making plans for the valuable experience of studying abroad.
