*ASAN requirements and breadth requirements may overlap. Eg. if the ASAN XXX course is a Social Science course, the student does not need to take another social science course to fulfill the breadth requirement.

**Students must meet the minimum language requirement (JPN: 6 credits above 402; CHN, KOR: 401-402; SEA, SA: 301-302); they may count up to 6 credits of language at or above the highest required level toward the degree, but they are not required to do so. Students who test out of the language requirement must take other electives (which could include advanced language courses) to make up the full 36 credits.

***Of these, no more than 9 credits can come from any one department besides Asian Studies.
