Students who major or minor in Asian Studies find job opportunities in international business, government service, non-governmental organizations, and the arts. Some go on to professional schools in such fields as management, finance, medicine, education, diplomacy, and law. Others pursue graduate degrees in Asian Studies or other disciplines and enter Asia-related academic careers.
