Senior Portfolio

Spring 2018

In lieu of a capstone experience, students who intend to graduate with a major in Asian Studies are required to complete a small portfolio prior to graduation. The portfolio is due to Dr. Julie Oakes by check back soon for date and should contain the following items:

  • (1) Photocopies of three assignments for two or more courses in Asian Studies—preferably from three different years in the program (can be long or short assignments, including work for language classes, and copies of originals, with teacher feedback, are fine)
  • (2) A brief reflection (2-3 pp) on your study abroad experience(s), if you were able to study in Asia
  • (3) A resume
  • (4) A brief description (2-3 pp) of how you see Asian Studies impacting your career or graduate school plans, focusing on roughly a 5-year time frame

The portfolio should be submitted in a manila folder with your name and date of graduation on the cover. Please include a Table of Contents for all items included in the portfolio, in order.  Again, this is to be submitted to the Interim Director, Dr. Julie Oakes (juloakes@umbc.edu), Fine Arts, Room 549 SOUTH, (check back for date soon) before Dr. Julie Oakes can sign off on your graduation review.
