Mount Holyoke Expands Asian Studies Offerings

Mount Holyoke College, the highly rated liberal arts educational institution for women in South Hadley, Massachusetts, has announced that its current major in Asian studies will be expanded to offer degree programs in four specific fields. The new majors will be in East Asian studies, Middle Eastern studies, South Asian studies, and Asian studies, which will have a transregional focus.

“Language study remains a core component of the major, but now our students are expected to incorporate the humanities and the social sciences more fully into their studies,” said program chair and associate professor Ying Wang. The college has been offering language studies in Chinese, Japanese and Arabic. Korean was added this year and a course on Sanskrit will be offered next year.
