CSULB Employment: To see current opportunities for the Department of Asian and Asian American Studies, please refer to the College of Liberal Art’s website for details.

The Department of Asian and Asian American Studies (AAAS) offers cutting edge language courses in Chinese, Japanese, Korean and other Asian languages.  Our four BA programs train students to research and explore Asian civilizations, both here and abroad, from an interdisciplinary perspective. Our MA program in Asian Studies focuses on training experts in Asia and globalization as well as Chinese or Japanese language pedagogy.

MORE IN FOUR!

We have four minors in AAAS:  Chinese Language and Culture , Japanese Language and Culture, Korean Language and Culture, and Cambodian (Khmer) Language and Culture.

For the most competitive training at CSU Long Beach while aiming to graduate in four years, AAAS advocates combining our BA programs with a minor or certificate in another discipline.  Asian languages are strategically important to business and government; bilingual fluency increases competitiveness and income.  We suggest using the Sophomore year to study abroad in Asia.
