Students with an interest in any aspect of East, Southeast, or South Asian civilization may under certain conditions pursue a concentration in Asian studies as part of their regular graduate studies. Those who fulfill the requirements may be awarded a Certificate in Asian Studies upon completion of their degree. Some requirements for the certificate may be used to satisfy the student's own graduate degree requirements. These requirements are as follows:

1. Successful completion with a minimum grade-point average of 3.0 in a minimum of two term courses on Asia within the chosen discipline and in a minimum of two term courses on Asia in one or more cognate fields (12 credits in total). At least two of these courses must be at the graduate level;

2. Reading proficiency in an Asian language;

3. Satisfactory completion of a research project in the field of Asian studies;

4. Either a master's thesis or an expanded seminar paper on a topic related to Asia.

Only students already admitted to a degree program in the Graduate School-New Brunswick may participate in the certificate program. Courses in Asian studies are offered by the participating faculty and additional faculty through their departments and graduate degree programs. Further information is available from the director of the certificate program in Asian studies.
