"My major in Asian studies has provided me a lens to understand some of today’s urgent issues in the international field and to explore my parts in what the world can become. Serving as an International Student Ambassador, I gained much valuable experience through international student outreach by navigating everyday complexities of intercultural communications."
- Esther, Asian Studies
"I decided to major in European Studies because I wanted to learn how contemporary Europe and the European Union fit into today's global context. What I love about this program is its interdisciplinary nature, which allows me to tailor my schedule towards classes I am most interested in, and are relevant to my career plans. Combining humanities and STEM into my curriculum, provides a strong foundation for real-world applications."
- Maria, European Studies
"Majoring in AMES has provided me with unique insight into the region, the transnational impact of its religions and diasporic peoples beyond the extent of today's hegemonic dialectics. Despite its interdisciplinary nature, I have been equipped with methodology and knowledge entirely academic and fully applicable to individual and international interactions. This major is ideal for students like me hoping to specialize in fields associated with other majors (such as anthro, econ, religion, etc) while maintaining orientation towards the region."
- Emeth, African and Middle Eastern Studies
