University of Georgia's Center for Asian Studies (CAS) promotes cross-campus research, teaching, and service initiatives concerning Asia, both past and present.  


The Center for Asian Studies strives to create, nurture, and manage academic programs across campus and exchanges with Asian academic institutions for students, faculty, and appropriate staff members. These programs primarily focus on Asian language acquisition, Area Studies, and disciplines across the Arts and Humanities, but the Center for Asian Studies also aims to incorporate the curricula and faculties from Law, Business, Agriculture, Education, Journalism, Veterinary Medicine and Sciences. At the forefront of the Center for Asian Studies Academic Programs is the opportunity for undergraduates to complete a Certificate in Asian Studies as part of their academic degree. 

Thank you for visiting our website, which aims to introduce visitors to activities and events sponsored by CAS here at the University of Georgia. We welcome your comments and suggestions, and we encourage and seek your support in furthering the Center’s goals.
