Asia Pacific Studies Minor

The Asia Pacific Studies minor provides students with an understanding of the region in terms of socio-cultural studies, history, politics, economics and languages, with particular attention to Southeast Asia, India, Korea and Japan.

The recent changes that have taken place in Australia's region, demonstrate how forces of globalisation are increasingly integrating all parts of the world, and shaping Australia's future as one in which it is essential to connect to wider cultural, social, political and economic trends. This major offers unique insights into the nature of globalisation in the Asia Pacific, and will equip graduates to understand and evaluate these changes through roles in government, trade, law, social policy, development studies and culture.
