Attention Graduating Asian Studies Majors – Fall 2019

Portfolios Due November 15, 2019

Graduating seniors are required to turn in a short portfolio of their work over the course of the major.
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. Meredith Oyen  by Friday, November 15, 2019 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 Asian Studies Program Director, Dr. Meredith Oyen, (, Fine Arts, Room 549, by Friday, November 15, 2019.

If you are graduating this semester, your portfolio is due to Dr. Meredith Oyen by November 15.  Dr. Oyen’s office is Fine Arts 549 South (reminder: use the elevator or stairs closest to the Engineering Building as the two 5th floors in Fine Arts do not connect).
