Study leading to a degree in Asian and Middle Eastern Studies (AMES) is interdisciplinary and is normally focused on one of the following areas: East Asia, the Middle East, and South/Southeast Asia. Each area is overseen by a faculty committee, and students majoring in AMES work in cooperation with their committee of specialization in the development of their course plan, off-campus studies, and independent work. Majors work with advisors (selected from the above list of program participants) to design a program of study to ensure coherence of language study, disciplinary training, and off-campus experience. Students should choose advisors in their respective areas of concentration. Careful planning should begin in consultation with the advisor by early in the spring term of the sophomore year. Each program of study also requires review and approval by the AMES Chair.
