Students who are candidates for the Ph.D. degree in another department or program may obtain an interdisciplinary minor in East Asian studies by earning a minimum of 12 credits in East Asian area studies. The credits must be earned in at least three departments other than the major department.
Interdisciplinary courses may be taken from many departments. Courses must contain a minimum of 25 percent East Asian content. UW–Madison Graduate School regulations concerning the use of courses required for the student’s major as part of the minor are to be observed when selecting courses. Because the instructors and contents of a course may change over time, please consult East Asian studies for confirmation on whether a course may count for a doctoral minor.
Please see UW’s Guide for a complete explanation of the certificate requirements and eligible courses.
