Earthquake and Tsunami Relief Efforts in Japan

Message From the Director

Erik Esselstrom2010 was an exciting year for Asian Studies at the University of Vermont, and 2011 looks bright as well. At present, more than 80 undergraduate students are pursuing a major course of study in Asian Studies, Chinese or Japanese, and another 70+ are minoring in these fields. During the past year, our program faculty has also continued to publish cutting edge scholarship, earn major research grants and academic awards, and provide outstanding classroom instruction on campus. Knowledge of Asian society, history and languages is indispensible in today’s world and UVM continues to be a terrific place for students to explore this part of the globe and cultivate a meaningful understanding of its peoples, customs, and traditions.

Please enjoy our spring 2011 newsletter and learn more about the many wonderful events and fantastic opportunities available to students with an interest in Asia at UVM.
