Global Asia Studies
Global Asia Studies enhances our students’ understanding of historical and contemporary global culture and politics by enabling students to engage with an extensive and intensive study of Asia and Asian Diasporas in the past and present. Global Asia Studies uses cutting-edge Humanities methods and theories from a range of different disciplines to explore the societies of East and South Asia and their global ramifications. It aims to locate the academic study of Asia within the fabric of the community through exciting co- and extra-curricular programming and a commitment to socially responsible and educationally rigorous experiential learning. The program resonates with the uniqueness of UTSC as a campus and to Scarborough as a diverse community.
